Apollo’s Fire and Chorus
J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion

 

Were it not for the composer Felix Mendelssohn, who rediscovered Bach’s St. Matthew Passion more than 75 years after the composer’s death, the world might never have been introduced to the music of this incredible composer and organist who revolutionized church music in the 18th century.

Using the Biblical text of the Passion according to the evangelist Matthew, traditionally read on Palm Sunday, Bach’s work is a musical and dramatic interpretation of the events of Holy Week. It is indisputably one of the highest achievements of Western art. This Palm Sunday performance features Apollo’s Fire and Chorus, with U-M alumnus Nicholas Phan in the leading role of the Evangelist.
