St Matthew Passion

At the moment, amongst other things, we are working hard to put together a performance of JS Bach's momumental St Matthew Passion, one of the greatest landmarks in music.

Tickets are available at SEETICKETS - or from the School. 

For the performance on Tuesday 26 March we will be joined by leading tenor Nicholas Mulroy as the Evangelist and our very own Nicholas Warden who will sing the role of Christ. The other parts and the arias will be sung by members of the Choir.

One of the highlights of a performance of this sublime work is always the alto aria, Erbame Dich. The aria comes just after Peter has denied knowing Jesus three times. Peter is stricken with grief,  and this music begins....sung here by Michael Chance, who appeared with the Choir in our performance of the St John Passion in 2005.
