Johann Sebastian Bach’s setting of St John’s account of the Passion presents a dramatic and heartfelt response to the events leading to the crucifixion of Jesus. Bach captures with intense fervour the last days of Jesus and brings the listener through an emotional and spiritual journey that is profoundly moving.
Hear The Choir and Band of The Chapels Royal perform St John Passion, one of Bach's most famous pieces of sacred music.
