Our most recent concerts

St John's Passion, J S Bach 26 March 2022 - 7.30pm St Andrew's Church, Burgess Hill

Of Bach’s two surviving musical settings of the Passion of Christ - St Matthew and St John - the St John Passion is often considered the more extravagant and more immediately expressive of the two, beginning with Jesus' arrest in the garden of Gethsemane, through his trial and to his eventual crucifixion.

Sussex Chorus is delighted to be offering an unusual way to present this work with a more dramatic performance than usual. Stephen Anthony Brown will sing the role of St John the evangelist, atmospherically guiding the audience as the narrator, whilst also conducting the choir, orchestra and soloists as they expertly become the characters in the story.
