One of Bach’s greatest achievements, the St. Matthew Passion is regularly performed by full orchestras and large choruses. But recent scholarship suggests that’s not how Bach would have performed it. With only eight singers and a small instrumental ensemble, we present this immortal masterpiece as Bach might have heard it.
