J.S. Bach's St John Passion is an intensely personal experience, bringing to life the humanity of the passion story. Combining raw emotion with moments of exquisite intimacy, it was written soon after Bach's arrival as Kantor at Leipzig's Thomasschule.

Keen to impress a new congregation, Bach produced a setting of the age-old passion story which overshadowed almost every piece of liturgical music the world had previously known. The Royal Academy Of Ancient Music's recording aims to capture the authenticity and vivacity of the very first Good Friday performance at Leipzig's Nikolaikirche.

'What a difference a perfect line-up of soloists makes: a St John Passion that flows like a river without rocks in the middle is a rarity. James Gilchrist's Evangelist, the platonic ideal of fiery indignation tempered with humble compassion, must surely have raised the game of the four aria singers.' TheArtsdesk.com
