Celebrating his 80th birthday year, Sir Roger Norrington conducts the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and Zürcher SingAkademie in JS Bach’s St John Passion

For this performance of Bach’s earliest passion setting, Norrington has a mighty fine cast at his disposal, James Gilchrist takes the narrative reins as the Evangelist, a part ideally suited to his agile tenor voice, and he is joined by bass-baritone Neal Davies, soprano Lucy Crowe and fellow tenor Andrew Kennedy.

Presented by Tom Service.
