The St Mark Passion (German: Markus-Passion), BWV 247, is a lost Passion setting by Johann Sebastian Bach, first performed in Leipzig on Good Friday, 23 March 1731 and again, in a revised version, in 1744.[not verified in body] Though Bach's music is lost, the libretto by Picander is still extant, and from this, the work can to some degree be reconstructed.
