From the intractable swell of the opening chorus to the profound solemnity of the last, the Matthew Passion contains some of the most exquisite music that Bach ever composed.

And there are few greater interpreters than the Dunedin Consort, whose annual performance has become a must-see event. Their intimate, one-per-part interpretation has set a benchmark for the genre, highlighting the very human story at the centre of this staggering musical masterpiece.
