    St Matthew Passion

    York Cathedral

    York Musical Society


    On Saturday 24 March at 7.30 p.m., come and experience one of the greatest choral works ever written in the magnificent surroundings of York Minster. York Musical Society performs Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with a choir of 150, orchestra, six soloists and senior choristers from the Minster. Written in 1727 for a Good Friday service, Bach created his Passion from choruses both small and large with arias for specific characters such as Jesus, Judas, Peter and Pontius Pilate. Both the chorus and orchestra are split in two to create a stunning musical effect. The Evangelist, a role for tenor voice, is the narrator and moves the drama along. Supporting Bach's structure are three grand choruses – at the beginning, middle and end – which frame the surrounding music. 

    Tickets priced at £5, £10, £15 and £20, plus concessions.
