Bach's St Matthew Passion at Exeter Cathedral
Description

The musical event of the season

JS Bach’s St Matthew Passion is an icon of western art. Written on a grand scale for three choirs, two orchestras and soloists, it has been likened to a gothic cathedral or a baroque palace. In telling Matthew’s version of Jesus’ last meal, trial and execution, it explores themes of freedom, love and liberty, presenting Jesus and asking “Who is this man?”

Tickets: £10 – £25 (under 18s £5) available from 01392 285983 and online.
