Bar Choral Society – St John Passion
The choir’s next concert is on 11th April 2017, 7pm, when we will perform Bach St John Passion. Written and premiered during his first year in Leipzig, the St John Passion is the leaner and more dramatic of Bach’s two surviving settings of the Holy Week narrative.
In this distinctive performance, the choir will be led by their Music Director and Conductor, Greg Morris and joined by Soloists James Way as Evangelist, Gareth John as Christus, William Towers Alto, Matthew Sandy Tenor and Andrew Rupp Bass.
The choir will also be joined by the chamber choir Collegium Musicum of London and the Temple Players. The Choristers of the Temple Church will perform the soprano arias, while the choir will take the role of a Lutheran congregation and sing the chorales, the emotional and theological heart of the work.
