City of Bristol Choir and professional orchestra The Lochrian Ensemble perform Bach’s mighty setting of the Gospel narrative, which recounts the events of Christ’s final days – betrayal, trial and crucifixion – in music brimming with power and drama.

The magnificent acoustic of St George’s Bristol makes it the perfect setting for what promises to be a thrilling performance of this compelling and noble work, sung in English and German.

Widely known for his performances of Baroque repertoire, the tenor Nicholas Mulroy has sung with some of its most noted exponents: Bach’s Evangelist with Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort, Laurence Cummings, Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic, John Butt and the Dunedin Consort. He has also sung to great acclaim with groups such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Choir of New College, Oxford, I Fagiolini, the King’s Consort, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Brussels Philharmonic, and at opera houses including Paris, Glyndebourne, Lille, and the Grand Capitole in Toulouse.
