Reconstruction of Bach’s Passion Liturgy
For the first time in Hong Kong, the audience can experience Bach’s gripping St John Passion within its original liturgical context. This performance will give listeners a refreshing outlook, shining a new light into one of the best-known works in the choral repertoire.
Internationally renowned Bach specialist Prof. John Butt, together with Die Konzertisten and the Baroque orchestra Cammer Musicus, will recreate the Good Friday Vesper liturgy of a passion performance during Bach’s time in Leipzig. In addition to the performance of Bach’s composition, the concert will also feature organ chorale preludes and congregation chorales of the time.
