J.S. Bach St John Passion

You only have to hear the astonishing opening chorus of the St John Passion to realise that this ‘small’ passion is in no way inferior to the St Matthew. Not to mention wonderful arias including Es ist vollbracht. The Scot John Butt directs a specialist soloist ensemble. And as an extra touch, Butt adds some chorales which the audience can join in, as was customary in Bach’s time.

Sing with the chorales
You can join in on singing some of the chorales as was custom in the time the piece premiered in Leipzig - 1724. Thirty minutes before the start of the concert, conductor John Butt will be practicing with the audience in the Grote Zaal of de Doelen. You are welcome to attend!
