J.S. Bach St John Passion


Gwilym Bowen Evangelist
Jonathan Lemalu Christus
Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea
Academy of Ancient Music
William Vann conductor

The Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and the Academy of Ancient Music return to Cadogan Hall to continue their Easter cycle of J.S. Bach’s choral works. Bach’s setting of the Passion according to St John is one of the supreme masterpieces of sacred music, but it’s also an intensely human story – a drama of turmoil and betrayal, suffering and redemption, that never loses its urgency.

Tenor Gwilym Bowen and bass-baritone Jonathan Lemalu lead a superb line-up of soloists, with all arias sung by members of the Chapel Choir.

‘First-class personnel… it’s the tension and subtlety in the performances that catch the ear’ (Gramophone, on the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea)

‘playing of irresistible colour and exuberance’ (The Telegraph on the Academy of Ancient Music)

‘something of a rising glory’ (The Times on Gwilym Bowen)

Please note start time.

Duration: approx. 2 hours 15 minutes (incl. interval)
