Ex Cathedra: Good Friday, St Matthew Passion

Ex Cathedra: Good Friday, St Matthew Passion

Friday, March 29, 2013 - 14:00

Bach's St Matthew Passion tells the profound and poignant story of Christ's last days. Every possibility afforded by the luxurious scoring of two choirs and two period-instrument orchestras is used to express and sustain an extraordinary range of feelings: love,sacrifice, betrayal, suffering, remorse, helplessness and shame. This most sublime and emotionally charged piece returns for the traditional Good Friday performance at Symphony Hall.

Sung in English.

There will be an extended interval for tea and the performance will end at approximately 6pm.

"Skidmore's overall shaping of the St Matthew Passion is marked by exceptional judgement" ( Gramophone)
