  1. St John Passion BWV 245 - Johann Sebastian Bach

Bach’s passion settings are among the supreme choral achievements of any age. His St John Passion is an intimate and deeply expressive telling of Christ’s persecution and crucifixion.

This Ely Choral Society concert promises to be a very special performance sung in English and taking full advantage of the wonderful acoustic of the Nave of the Cathedral.

Rogers Covey-Crump is well-known as a leading exponent of the role of Evangelist and he is joined by a group of young singers, all forging notable careers as opera and oratorio soloists. The performance is accompanied by an orchestra of period instruments provided by the Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra and will be conducted by Andrew Parnell.

Whilst the St John Passion is mostly performed in German, this performance will be in a traditional English translation so that the audience can directly follow the drama.
