Concert Notes
St John Passion

David Gostick

Come to Bath Abbey on Wednesday in Holy Week to be immersed in one of the most compelling music dramas ever written. The Easter narrative is vividly portrayed through Bach's exciting choruses and strikingly beautiful arias and chorales.

This magnificent work will be sung in English by Bath Choral Society and conducted by David Gostick. Performed in the resounding acoustics of the Abbey, this promises to be an uplifting spiritual experience for all. The choir will be accompanied by Canzona, a renowned baroque ensemble playing period instruments.

As usual we will have soloists with international reputations, including: Charles Daniels – Evangelist; Neal Davies – Pilate; Edward Price – Christus; Joe Bolger – Countertenor and Nick Drew – Tenor.

The performance will start at the earlier than usual time of 7.00pm and doors will open at 6.15pm
