Description

Arvo Pärt's Passio - The Façade Ensemble

St Michael at the North Gate is pleased to welcome The Façade Ensemble, for a performance of Arvo Pärt's 1982 composition "Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi secundum Joannem".

Pärt's compelling and profoundly beautiful setting of the St. John Passion (accompanied by organ, violin, oboe, 'cello and bassoon) is the culmination of his popular 'tintinnabuli' style. Inspired by medieval music (and meaning 'little bells'), this style of composition pares music down to its triadic simplicity. Echoing the earliest monophonic Passion settings, such music - like the narrative itself - is as powerfully dramatic to the modern ear as it has ever been.

The Façade Ensemble will also be performing Passio in Peterborough, London, and at Ely Cathedral.

The Façade Ensemble conduced by Benedict Collins Rice
James Bartlett - Jesus
Toby Ward - Pilate
Rosalind Dobson, Helen Charlston, Hiroshi Amako, Robbie Haylett - Evangelist Quartet
