About This Event
A journey through five centuries of Western classical music in an afternoon with the BBC Singers and Swedish-French choral director Sofi Jeannin. Together they tell the familiar Passion story as you’ve never heard it before, moving from the earliest-known responsorial setting by Johann Walter (1496–1570) through Passion music by Schütz, Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn and Stainer, right up to contemporary settings by Sofia Gubaidulina and Sir James MacMillan.
This promises to be a musical experience unlike any other, and a perfect partner to tonight’s complete performance of Bach’s St John Passion.
There will be no interval
