Lincoln Cathedral Choir, Lincoln Choral Society, Lincoln Chorale, Lincoln Cathedral Consort, and Lincoln Diocesan Ladies Choir will be conducted by Aric Prentice for J S Bach’s St Matthew Passion.
Betrayal judgement and death, but above all, love. Although most of the words of St Matthew Passion are almost 2000 years old, the message is still relevant today. The St Matthew Passion piece tells the story of Jesus’ last days, where he is betrayed, tried, crucified and then buried. The lyrics were compiled by Picander in close consultation with Bach.
This piece of music is still moving audiences, nearly three centuries after it was first heard. It is monumental, intimate, deeply sorrowful and powerful.
All 5 choirs look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral for a truly unforgettable performance.
