St John Passion at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 23 June 2017, from £14.00 - Book now

The St John Passion tells the story of Jesus’ last hours, as told by St John, with startling immediacy. Regarded as a powerhouse among oratorios, this intensely sacred work is famous for its sheer beauty. It opens with an impassioned cry to God, written in the plain language of an earnest witness and full of restlessness and desire. Between this opening and the final, magnificent chorus, we are called to face up to some of the most basic questions in life, all in the form of an urgent, unsentimental story.

An intimate ensemble of RNCM soloists, choir and chamber orchestra will bring Bach’s most emotional and dramatic Passion to life under the baton of David Hill, one of the UK’s foremost choral conductors, Musical Director of the Bach Choir and Principal Conductor of the BBC Singers. They will be joined by Nicholas Mulroy, taking the role of the Evangelist.
