Lyric fm's Paul Herriott presents a stunning performance of Bach's St John's Passion live from the National Concert Hall, featuring the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.
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.
Performers: Nicholas Mulroy (Evangelist). Lina Johnson (soprano), John Lattimore (countertenor), Benjamin Bevan (bass) with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir (Chorus Master: Mark Hindley) and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra (Conductor: Nicholas Kraemer)
