Pärt’s setting of the St. John Passion is perhaps one of the best-known choral works of the late twentieth-century. The gospel narrative speaks with direct intimacy, through a small piquantly-voiced instrumental and vocal ensemble and rigorous patterning of simple ideas. Despite the economical means, the work has a breathtaking nobility equal to its subject matter, and offers us a chance to follow the via dolorosa in a new and powerfully immediate way.

The line-up of performers includes Galway’s most well-known players alongside some of the brightest young Irish singers emerging on the European scene.

The programme will be available to download from Thursday 1 April 2021.
This concert can be viewed live at 5pm, after which the recording will be available to watch until 5pm on Tuesday 6 April.
