Bach  Month continues with the St John Passion

Johann Sebastian Bach is considered by many to be the greatest composer of all time in the western classical music tradition. So in honour of his incredible output the month of April is all Bach on Choral Concert.

This Sunday, April 14th we present his St. John Passion, Bach’s take on one of the most well known stories in the western world, the chronicle of the passion and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It’s a beautiful work that features everyone from Pontius Pilate to Jesus Christ himself.

You will hear a wonderful performance with the Kings College Chapel choir and ensemble Regale led by Paul Halley, recorded at All Saints Cathedral in Halifax on this past March 24th.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, You can check out the Choral Concert blog and the 24/7 choral stream plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
