Online: JS Bach's St John Passion from isolation | Oxford Bach Soloists

Tuesday June 30, 2020 at 15:00
Positive Note YouTube Channel, Oxford
Free admission – no ticket required

  1. St John Passion BWV 245 - Johann Sebastian Bach
    • Chorale: Ach Herr, lass dein lieb Engelein

    • Darnach bat Pilatum Joseph von Arimathia
    • Ruht wohl, ihr heiligen Gebeine

As coronavirus swept the world, and concerts everywhere were cancelled, we realised that Good Friday 2020 may very well be the first without a sung live Passion since the middle ages.

So Oxford Bach Soloists and Positive Note set about assembling an all-star cast for a 'St John Passion from isolation', the first instalment of which was premiered on YouTube on Good Friday 10 April.

With many musicians suffering during these challenging times, it seemed only right that this special concert be held in aid of Help Musicians UK, a wonderful charity who do life-saving work. https://bit.ly/OBSSJPJG

Our thanks go to all the performers, technicians and administrators who have given their time and considerable talents to pull this all together.

Premiered on YouTube from 10 Apr 2020 to 31 May 2020
