Worcester Festival Choral Society, perform St John Passion by Bach at Worcester Cathedral
On Saturday 19 March 2022, at 7.30pm, the 150 voices of Worcester Festival Choral Society close their landmark 160th anniversary season with Bach’s glittering choral masterpiece, St John Passion… one of the greatest sacred choral works that is by turns evocative, stirring, exultant and profoundly moving.
Fittingly complemented by the magnificent setting of Worcester Cathedral, the Chorus will be joined by six, acclaimed soloists: including renowned tenor Nicholas Mulroy as Evangelist (below, far left), who performed the role at the BBC Proms 2017 to critical acclaim. Joining him (below, second left to right) are bass-baritone James Newby as Christus and bass-baritone John Savournin as Pilatus, as well as tenor Alessandro Fisher, mezzo soprano Sarah Denbee and soprano Angela Hicks. Accompanied by the superb Meridian Sinfonia orchestra, the concert will be conducted by Worcester Cathedral’s director of music Samuel Hudson.
