ELY CHORAL SOCIETY CONCERT - ST JOHN PASSION. BACH

24 March 2018 7:30pm

Andrew Parnell Director
Rogers Covey-Crump Evangelist
Edmund Aldhouse Organ continuo

Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra

This promises to be a very special performance sung in English and taking full advantage of the wonderful acoustic of the Nave of the Cathedral. Bach's passion settings are among the supreme choral achievements of any age. His St John Passion is an intimate and deeply expressive telling of Christ's persecution and crucifixion.

Rogers Covey-Crump is well-known as a leading exponent of the role of Evangelist and he is joined by a group of young singers, all forging notable careers as opera and oratorio soloists. The performance is accompanied by an orchestra of period instruments provided by the Chameleon Arts Baroque Orchestra and will be conducted by Andrew Parnell. Whilst the St John Passion is usually performed in German, this performance will be in an English translation so that the audience can directly follow the drama.
