JS Bach Johannes-Passion 118′

The drama of Christ’s crucifixion unfolds in the compelling music of JS Bach, told through the powerful words of St John’s gospel. It is a musical exploration of turmoil and betrayal, of suffering and redemption. The cathedral choirs of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester perform one of the supreme masterpieces of sacred music.
