About

A cast of superlative soloists combine with the Academy of Ancient Music in its 40th anniversary year for a landmark new recording of Bach’s St John Passion.

This is a rare recording of the first version from 1724, whose score reveals “a more direct impact and dramatic colouring that befits the younger, more muscular compositional vision” (Richard Egarr).

Further content available online includes a film of the complete opening chorus, interviews with soloists and tracks exploring the development of the work throughout Bach’s lifetime.


Cast:
- James Gilchrist (Evangelista)
- Matthew Rose (Jesus)
- Ashley Riches (Pilatus)
