Of the five complete passions Bach wrote,
only two survive. We invite you to experience
what might have been, with our presentation
of this stunning reconstruction of his St. Mark
Passion by Simon Heighes. Based on the
surviving libretto by Picander, the librettist
for the Matthew Passion, and fashioned from
arias and choruses from Bach’s own works, a
vocal ensemble of 9 singers together with
an intimate instrumental ensemble will
allow us to present this work as it would
have been performed by Bach.

Tickets are available for purchase at the door, one half hour before each performance.
