Ben Crick conductor

Ben Crick and a formidable line up of professional singers and instrumentalists delivers what we believe is the first ever performance in Skipton of Johann Sebastian Bach's St Matthew Passion.

Considered by many to be the greatest of all choral masterpieces, Bach’s St Matthew Passion combines drama with devotion like no other, and contains some of the most beautiful and exquisitely crafted music ever written. Bach himself considered it his best work. Conceived on a larger scale than the more often performed St John Passion, the setting of the Passion of Christ according to St Matthew requires two choruses, two orchestras and an array of soloists.

Please note: This concert begins at 7pm. There is one interval and the performance will finish at approximately 10:15pm.
