The University of King’s College Chapel Choir’s cycle of Baroque masterworks brings them back to J.S. Bach’s St John Passion this season with two performances on the weekend before Easter. First performed in Leipzig on Good Friday of 1724, Bach’s St John Passion is a musically extravagant setting full of foreboding and intensity yet startling in its beauty. These performances directed by five-time Grammy winner Paul Halley feature an all-period instrumental ensemble led by Montreal’s Marie Nadeau-Tremblay, the inimitable Charles Daniels singing the role of Evangelist, and a line-up of early music soloists from Canada and the U.K. showcasing a mix of well-known names and up-and-coming young stars: Francis Bamford (alto), Alexander Dobson (Jesus), Philippe Gagné (tenor), Clayton Kennedy (Pilate), Janelle Lucyk (soprano).
The University of King’s College has won a reputation for presenting world-class performances of the great Baroque masterworks right here in Nova Scotia.
