Bach: St. Matthew Passion

2006 Rated NR 2hr 8m

The Laudibus Chamber Choir and the English Festival Orchestra bring Johann Sebastian Bach's "St. Matthew Passion" to life in this memorable festival performance filmed in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. When it was performed by German composer Felix Mendelssohn in 1829, the piece -- considered the most monumental Passion ever composed -- helped resurrect public interest in Bach's body of work (interest had waned since his death 80 years earlier).
