Owen Rees conductor

Drama and suffering lie at the heart of Bach’s concentrated depiction of Christ’s arrest, rendition and execution, the St John Passion. But this probing, unsettling yet beautiful work is also one of Bach’s most optimistic, ending with a confident look to the future that invites us all, irrespective of faith, to partake in joy as we have partaken in pain. In the expert hands of Professor Owen Rees, Director of Music at The Queen’s College who conducts his own choir and six outstanding soloists, this Maundy Thursday performance will be both dramatic and devotional.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 22:10
