The BBC Singers revive Mendelssohn’s arrangement when they sing the work in the sonorous and small-scale Milton Court. Peter Dijkstra conducts, with tenor Nicholas Mulroy as the Evangelist and bass Brindley Sherratt as Christus.
Mulroy has had much acclaim for his Bach interpretations, with Fiona Maddocks of the Observer noting: “Nicholas Mulroy is now an Evangelist of choice, dramatic yet never over-involved, engaged reporter rather than partisan witness.”
The period instruments of St James’ Baroque will add a tangy zest to Bach (and Mendelssohn’s) stunning score.
Early booking is recommended. So enduring is its appeal, every performance in London of the St Matthew Passion sells out fast...
