J.S. Bach—St John Passion
Chamber Choir Ireland

Nick Pritchard —Evangelist
Chamber Choir Ireland joins forces with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, conductor David Hill and five internationally acclaimed soloists for a work as monumental as it is moving. One of the most magnificent and moving of all choral works, Bach’s St John Passion is a compelling re-telling of the events leading up to Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday. Operatic in its scale and intensity, it’s a bold, dramatic and emotional experience that speaks of human frailty and divine redemption with overwhelming sincerity. For all faiths and none, it is a masterpiece that gives a human dimension to a story of divine promise and hope.
