Johann Sebastian Bach – St John Passion BWV 245 with James Gilchrist as the Evangelist

S. Bach St. John PassionSomerset Chamber Choir

James Gilchrist – Evangelist
Sophie Gallager – Soprano
Hamish McLaren – Countertenor
Rory Carver – Tenor
Henry Thatcher – Bass
Niall Anderson – Bass
There can be few more powerfully expressive works than Bach’s Passion according to St. John. Here is the story of Christ’s last days, told with more drama and musical ingenuity than any swords-and-sandals Hollywood epic.
The baying mob portrayed by the chorus contrasts with the intimate and intensely moving arias of the soloists, and the whole is bound together by the poignant narration of the Evangelist, her sung by one of the world’s greatest interpreters of the role, James Gilchrist.
Tickets: £25, £20, (nave reserved), £16 & £10 (front/rear side aisles unreserved). Children/students half-price.
