Johann Sebastian Bach's St. Matthew Passion was written to be performed at Good Friday services at Leipzig's St. Thomas Church around 1727-29. 'The work transferred from church to concert hall by way of Felix Mendelssohn, who virtually broke the piece out of its grave,' said OSNY Music Director Kent Tritle. 'From then on, the incredible and expansive emotional appeal of Bach's writing carried the work from choral society to choral society, and today it is a concert touchstone that we cannot do without.'
