A musical masterwork, Bach's St John Passion is a cornerstone of Western musical art. The music is full of excitement, yet carefully paced, driven forward by the 'turba' (crowd) choruses. Bach shows his mastery of matching instrumental colour to individual voices, notably the mournful viola da gamba accompaniment to the aria 'Es ist vollbracht', here sung by Iestyn Davies, one of the finest countertenors of his generation. Bernard Labadie conducts the orchestra and choir of AAM and a celebrated cast of soloists including James Gilchrist as the Evangelist.
