Celebrate Easter with this performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion - the greatest work of the kind ever composed, a milestone in western civilisation. St Matthew's dramatic description of the events leading to Christ's crucifixion is brought to life in Bach's music, performed here by some of the UK's top soloists with the City of London Sinfonia and the London Symphony Chorus, conducted by their Chorus Director, Joseph Cullen.
'The choral singing, thrilling in its immediacy and clarity, can only be described as electrifying from start to finish.' The Guardian
