Bach's St. John Passion is an artistic triumph, not only for its music, but the brilliance with which Bach set the Passion narrative. In this premiere of Madeleine Marshall's new English translation of this masterpiece, the expressive words of the Passion shine through for Anglophone audiences, giving new life to the piece whose imagery, intensity, and ardor has inspired audiences, musicians, and composers through the ages.
