For this year’s performance in the Barbican Centre’s 2015/16 season, the always worthwhile Academy of Ancient Music are accompanied by a fantastic cast of soloists. The role of the Evangelist is taken by tenor James Gilchrist, a seasoned expert in Bach’s vocal music with an enviable discography under his belt, and Susan Gritton (Messiah, ROH), known for her versatility and vast repertoire. Mezzo Barbara Kozelj and baritone Ashley Riches will join them, while Richard Egarr conducts from the harpsichord stool. With such pedigree performing such glorious music, it’s all but certain that this will be a delightful seasonal treat.
