Bach: St John Passion (York Musical Society)

Scroll to explore

Bach St John Passion (sung in English)

Enjoy hearing this unforgettable work in the superb setting of York Minster, performed by York Musical Society with a choir of over 100 voices, six soloists and a full orchestra. The ideal music and setting as Easter approaches!

Bach wrote the St John Passion during his first year as director of music at Leipzig and it was first performed in 1724. The Evangelist’s words closely follow the text of Luther’s version of St John’s Gospel. The chorales used melodies and words that would have been sung by the congregation in Bach’s day. When you hear it, you will experience why the Passion is still frequently performed and greatly loved.
