The Passion - Chartres Cathedral, Panel 51

The Passion According to St Mathew (J.S. Bach), Part II

The first performance of the St. Matthew Passion was given at the Leipzig Thomaskirche, on Good Friday of 1727. But Bach substantially revised his greatest, most complex liturgical work in 1736, and the Toccata Presentations are based on that version. The St Mathew Passion, in this form, was his last major composition for the Leipzig congregations.

The St. Matthew Passion was written for two separate Choirs, accompanied by two small Orchestras. In most Arias, only one Orchestra provides accompaniment. The Choirs are sometime separated, but more often sing in unison or antiphony - moving the story forwards, and also providing commentary on the events. At different times, the Choruses appear as an unruly mob, or quiet witnesses, or actual participants in the story.

Vocal Soloists for this presentation will include: Daniel Paulson as the Evangelist; Stuart Duke as Jesus; Michael Lloyd as Peter; Richard Haines as Judas; Brad Perry as Pilate; and Chris Nelson as the Priest.  Joy StrotzBecky Earl,  and Anne Davidson  will also perform, appearing in female roles.

The Two TOCCATA Orchestras will feature Jeffrey Lindhorst as Concertmaster for Orchestra One;  Rick Stockton as Concertmaster for Orchestra Two; with David BrockNick Haines, and  Lou Groffman, as continuo.

All concert performances will be conducted by Maestro James Rawie.   Click on any location to see a map:
