St. Matthew Passion

Carmel Bach Festival

Carmel Bach Festival St. Matthew Passion

Bach's masterpiece is one of the pillars of Western sacred music; it is monumental and intimate, deeply sorrowful and powerful. The work continues to move and inspire audiences nearly 300 years after its debut.

St. Matthew Passion dramatically tells the story of the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. While the drama is dark, the story is given great lift by Bach’s almost cinematic characterizations and softened by his constant expression of the Christian tenets of love, grace, and salvation. While the Passion is a well-known narrative, Bach’s setting reflects a timeless humanity that has profound meaning for any generation.
