Continuing the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus tradition of performing a Bach passion at EasterBach’s St Matthew Passion is regarded as one of the greatest choral works ever written. It follows events leading to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ using text from 26th and 27th chapters of St Matthew’s Gospel.

It is a magnificent and compelling work written for double orchestra, double chorus and five soloists. Conducted by Gavin Carr, the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and Youth Chorus are joined by Bournemouth Chamber Ensemble and international soloists including Evangelist Mark Wilde and Christus Jake Muffett.
