Together with Bach's St. Matthew Passion, St. John's Passion is one of the most beloved passions ever. One of the secrets of the play lies with the evangelist John himself. In his version of Jesus' Passion, the writer is more 'to the point' than the other evangelists. Bach makes clever use of this, because in St John's Passion there is speed and you hear more drama. This is reinforced by the choir's considerable contribution, as in the poignant opening choir 'Herr, unser Herrscher'. And of course there are beautiful arias like 'Zerfließe, mein Herze' and 'Ergwäge'. The Apollo Ensemble provides an impressive experience in passionate times.
