St Matthew Passion a triumph

The choir’s presentation of Bach’s magnificent St Matthew Passion was a triumph, with audience members on their feet at the end of this sumptuous work. The double choir and orchestra sang and played with assurance and accuracy, with venom and accusation, but also sorrow and penitence in all the right places. The soloists excelled, filling the cathedral by turns with beautifully heartfelt arias and reverent narration. A wonderful evening both for classical concert goers and those seeking liturgical inspiration.
