The St John Passion is the most dramatic of all Bach’s major choral works. The Passion story is depicted in remarkably vivid and poignant music in which the chorus play a major role, depicting the angry crowd, mocking and taunting Jesus, as well as singing the two great contemplative choruses which frame the passion story and leading the wonderful chorales which punctuate and comment on the drama. South Bucks Choral Society, performing this great work for the first time, are joined by a team of outstanding young soloists from the Royal Academy of Music, where Iain Ledingham is Musical Director of a ten-year project to perform all of Bach’s sacred and secular Cantatas – over 200 choral works.
