Laudibus Chamber Choir in Bach: St. Matthew Passion

Bach: St. Matthew Passion

2006 NR

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).
