Directed by Jeffrey Makinson, Lincoln Cathedral Choir will be performing St. John Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach in the Nave of Lincoln Cathedral.
This masterpiece is the older of two surviving Passions by Bach. It was written during Bach’s first year as director of church music in Leipzig and was first performed at St. Nicholas Church on Good Friday, 1724.
Compared with the St. Matthew Passion, the St. John Passion has been described as more extravagant, with an expressive immediacy, at times raw and unbridled.
In this performance, the Cathedral Choir will be joined by the Baroque Players of London and soloists Eleanor Gregory, Aric Prentice, Mark Wilde, Matthew Keighley and Boz Smiljanic.
