Overview

Long considered the noblest, most inspired musical treatment of the crucifixion of Christ, Bach's St. Matthew Passion remains an immensely popular, oft-recorded work. First performed in the late 1720s, the great choral masterpiece was scored for a vast ensemble of double chorus, soloists, double orchestra, and two organs. Richly dramatic and theatrical, its deeply moving story unfolds in recitatives, ariosos, arias, and majestic choral movements.
Reproduced here from an authoritative early edition, the score appears with bar-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
