The annual performance of the Holy Week Passion music on Good Friday was one of the musical highlights of the Leipzig church year, for on this day, concerted music was only presented in one of the four churches for which Bach was responsible. The Matthew Passion for three choirs and two orchestras is Bach’s most dramatic and complex score – startling and arresting choruses contrasting with sublime solo arias. On this occasion we also observe the 25th Anniversary of Frederick Jodry’s choral conducting at Brown, with three Brown Choir Alumni who are making careers in Early Music brought together to sing the arias. Simon Wall, a tenor from Westminster Abbey will sing the role of the Evangelist.
