Friday March 30th, 7.30pm (Good Friday)

Paul Herriott presents Bach's St John's Passion in a performance recorded earlier this afternoon in the National Concert Hall. One of the most magnificent and moving of all choral works, Bach's St John Passion is a compelling re-telling of the events leading up to Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday. Operatic in its scale and intensity, it's a bold, dramatic and emotional experience that speaks of human frailty and divine redemption with overwhelming honesty and is a devotional masterpiece of searing power.
