Event description

Description

Lincoln Cathedral Choir, Lincoln Choral Society, Lincoln Chorale, Lincoln Cathedral Consort, and Lincoln Diocesan Ladies Choir will be conducted by Aric Prentice for J S Bach’s St Matthew Passion.

Betrayal judgement and death, but above all, love. Although most of the words of St Matthew Passion are almost 2000 years old, the message is still relevant today. The St Matthew Passion piece tells the story of Jesus’ last days, where he is betrayed, tried, crucified and then buried. The lyrics were complied by Picander in close consultation with Bach.

This piece of music is still moving audiences, nearly three centuries after it was first heard. It is monumental, intimate, deeply sorrowful and powerful.

St Matthew Passion will be sold with allocated reserved seating. Seats will be allocated from the front of each section to ensure the best available seat at time of purchase. We advise that all guests book early to avoid disappointment.

Accessible seats are avaiable in all sections. These can be booked by calling the events team on 01522 504394.
