Our March concert fell shortly before the start of Holy Week, the ideal time to hear Bach’s fantastic telling of the Easter Story as set out in the Gospel of St John. We were be joined by a first-rate band of soloists, including bass-baritone Jamie W Hall singing the part of Christ and tenor xxxx as the Evangelist. We were also delighted to be performing once more with Florilegium, one of the country’s most outstanding period orchestras.

We are particularly grateful to Edward Ross and Peter Davoren who stood in a short notice in place of Mark Wilde (Evangelist) and Joel Williams (tenor soloist), who were unwell. Their excellent contributions were very much appreciated.
