JS Bach: Matthew Passion BWV 244

Dunedin Consort; John Butt: Director; Nicholas Mulroy: Evangelist; Matthew Brook: Christ

The award winning Dunedin Consort presents its annual performance of one of Bach's most gripping works at the time of year when its powerful message is most often contemplated.

Its eight main soloists (singing in German) perform also in the choruses, bringing a level of intimacy and drama that bigger forces cannot match. Bach intersperses the passion narrative with profoundly expressive choruses, arias and chorales producing a work of intense emotional impact that has justly become one of the pillars of Western classical music.
