About

The St Matthew Passion is the third part of ‘The Soli Deo Gloria Collection’ conducted by the American John Nelson who is well known for his interpretations of Romantic works.

This monumental piece, composed by J S Bach, recounts the dramatic story of the capture and crucifixion of Jesus Christ - a profound, dramatic, lyrical and contemplative work.

The concert features the excellent Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, as well as two internationally acclaimed choirs: the Schola Cantorum of Oxford (one of the oldest choirs in the UK) and the Maîtrise de Paris, with origins back in the 12th century.

The film was directed by Louise Narboni and filmed twice with 7 HDTV cameras in the Basilica Cathedral Saint-Denis – a unique, monumental masterpiece of Gothic art.

The Blu-ray also includes the 52 minute Documentary 'John Nelson’s Saint Matthew Passion - The Journey' by Louise Narboni as a bonus - showing intense rehearsals and interviews with John Nelson.
