The Lyric Concert with Eamonn Lenihan

An all Britten programme from this year's West Cork Chamber Music Festival

WATCH BELOW: Friday 14th April, Bach's St. Matthew Passion 

Paul presents Bach's St Matthew Passion in a performance recorded earlier this afternoon at the National Concert Hall. Easter in Ireland is traditionally marked by performances of Bach’s oratorios or ‘Passions’ – either the St John or, this year, the St Matthew. The work is a compilation from St Matthew’s gospel, with narration interspersed with chorales and arias. First performed almost 300 years ago, it’s become one of the most profound reflections on the Passion of Christ. The performers assembled could hardly be equalled either for their individual talents or their capacity to work as an ensemble: conductor Matthew Halls has an enviable European reputation as an early music specialist; Irish soloists Brendan Collins, Madeleine Shaw and Aoife Miskelly are joined by Ben Johnson from England, Mark Wilde from Scotland, and Stephan Loges from Germany, all supported by the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, whose chorus master Mark Hindley has worked assiduously with them to prepare for this sacred presentation at the centre of the Christian calendar.
