Anniversary Concert – Bob Chilcott St John Passion; JS Bach Jesu, meine Freude

Our Spring concert will be a performance of Bob Chilcott’s St John Passion, setting words from St John’s Gospel in a dramatic retelling of the Passiontide story, and JS Bach’s Jesu, meine Freude, BWV227 the longest and most musically complex of Bach’s six motets.

Chilcott’s work combines 13th- and 17th-century English poetry with texts from the King James Bible and, as with Bach’s great Passion settings, the role of the Evangelist is taken by the tenor soloist. By including five well-known hymn texts set to new, original melodies, the work further confirms Chilcott’s status as one of the world’s most popular active choral composers.  

Imogen Russell ¦ Soprano

Laurence Panter ¦ Tenor – Evangelist

William Haynes ¦ Baritone – Jesus

Ben Packer ¦ Baritone – Pilate

 

Please note: This concert will be led by Guest Conductor Paul Leddington Wright
