Bach’s St Matthew Passion begins in the turmoil of Jesus’s last days in Jerusalem and ends with his crucifixion and burial. Christchurch City Choir is proud to present this work just prior to Easter in keeping with its story. With over 250 musicians on stage, this performance will be epic.  The St Matthew Passion is one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s greatest creations, revealing layers of meaning in the text. The music is dramatic, passionate and emotional. Surprises abound!

DR JOHN LINKER, conductor
DAVID BURCHELL, organ

SOLOISTS: Iain Tetley (Evangelist), Scott Bezett (Jesus), Lois Johnston (Soprano),
Claire Barton (Alto), Andrew Grenon (Tenor), Malcolm Leitch (Bass)

Music Director: Sue Densem

“The astonishing variety of the singing, the display of absolute confidence, freedom and easy interaction of all choir members, made this a concert which will live long in the memory – a wonderful music experience for both choir and audience, exhibiting the splendid culture in the choir, built up under the leadership of Music Director Sue Densem and her assistants, Brent Stewart and Rachel Alexander.”
