J.S. Bach's St Matthew Passion

Date: 
Sat, 04/05/2019 - 2:00pm

St Matthew Passion is a sacred oratorio composed in 1727 by Johann Sebastian Bach. This deeply moving work is both sorrowful and powerful. Musical Director Meryl Jackson-Kew will conduct the Illawarra Choral Society with four guest soloists and organ accompanist.
The work begins with a dramatic chorus consisting of a double choir with a soprano ripieno soaring over the top. With gripping drama, it retells the story of the crucifixion. It ends with the sublime chorus, “In tears of grief.”
