About the Event

Marvel in the wonders of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Matthaüs Passion BWV 244. A setting of the libretto written by Picander composed in 1727 for double orchestra and choir with solo voices over the top, this magnificent work is an example of some of the finest work from the baroque period.  Directed by James Fellows, Organist as St Giles’ Church and Luceat, and a masters candidate at The Queen’s College, Oxford, Jack Culbert as the Evangelist and Donald Taylor as Christus. Performed by Luceat Choir and Baroque Orchestra with the choristers of St Giles' Church at St Giles' Oxford as part of the church's 900th anniversary celebrations, you will not want to miss this performance as we approach the time of year for which this passion was originally composed.  Profits from this concert will go towards the St Giles' Church Project 900 - supporting the St Giles' Academy of music, and contributing to the fund for a new organ.
