Bach’s St Matthew Passion


Sunday 12 March at 7pm, St George’s Bristol

David conducts City of Bristol Choir and professional orchestra The Lochrian Ensemble in a performance of Bach’s mighty setting of the Gospel narrative, which recounts the events of Christ’s final days – betrayal, trial and crucifixion – in music brimming with power and drama.

The choir is joined by a first class line-up of soloists, all of whom have appeared nationally and internationally with some of the world’s leading ensembles.

The magnificent acoustic of St George’s Bristol makes it the perfect setting for what promises to be a thrilling performance of this compelling and noble work. In this performance, the narrative recitatives and choruses will be sung in English, with the arias and chorales in German, bringing an immediacy to the drama and a sense of contemplation to the reflective movements.

Tickets £10 to £25, discounts for concessions, tickets for students and under 18s £5, available from St George’s box office online and by phone on 0845 40 24 001
