The essence of J.S. Bach’s St John Passion – with its extraordinary beauty, profundity and visceral energy – is the communication of a human story. This is at the heart of CEFC’s interpretation of the work. Using Neil Jenkins’s sensitive translation into English, the true horror and pathos of the story of the Passion is communicated directly from the mouths of the singers to the ears and hearts of the listening audience.
