Bach’s St John Passion is more than one of the greatest of all sacred works. It’s a profound spiritual drama; a searching musical exploration of eternal hopes and sorrows. Jeannette Sorrell founded the dynamic American baroque ensemble Apollo’s Fire, and she understands the power of this music from the inside. With members from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and soloists including our resident artist Roderick Williams, this unique, dramatized performance of Bach’s masterpiece should speak more powerfully than ever.
