Passion is a traditional genre of sacred music that developed from folk mystery plays performed during Lent, narrating the sufferings and death of Christ. J. S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion and St John Passion are considered the best compositions of the genre. In our concert two singers and an organ present fragments from these masterpieces.
