Bach’s St Matthew Passion will be performed complete with the Choir of St. Peter's Church and Vocalis chamber choir (director Alex Kyle), with the professional Harrogate Bach Players (leader Fiona Love) directed by John Longstaff, Director of Music and Organist at St Peter’s Church. This is the only performance of the St. Matthew Passion during Holy Week in North Yorkshire this year.

The work is being given in a recent English translation by John Longstaff and Andrew Greenan, (the internationally acclaimed soloist singing the bass arias). This is an unmissable opportunity to hear Bach's St. Matthew Passion complete in Holy Week, in a new English translation which seeks to communicate the text as clearly as possible while respecting Bach's natural speech rhythms.

The other professional soloists are the tenors Joseph Doody and James Micklethwaite (both born locally, and like Andrew a soloist in the recent performance of the St. Matthew Passion in Bradford); Philip Wilcox (Jesus) and Jenny Stafford (soprano, pictured) who are both principals on the current ETO tour, and Heather Lowe (mezzo-soprano) who is well-known to Opera North audiences for her appearances in The Barber of Seville, Hansel and Gretel, Julius Caesar and The Snow Maiden.

Tickets for the St Matthew Passion are £15 available by calling 07425 161425, via Eventbrite (booking fee applies) or on the door subject to space.
