    Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent present an accomplished reading of Bach's St John Passion that reflects their knowledge of the composer, based on extensive research and deepened by countless concerts. 

    With its famous opening chorus traversed by shadows and light, Bach’s St John Passions is a powerful musical and spiritual reflection. Dramatic, grandiose, complex, resolutely theatrical: there has been no lack of superlatives to describe this supreme masterpiece of western music.

    Soloists Krešimir Stražanac and Maximilian Schmitt demonstrate the breadth of their talents in the roles of Jesus and the Evangelist.
