5887208Ex Cathedra
DateFriday 10th April 2020
DescriptionEx Cathedra Choir & Baroque Orchestra Ex Cathedra Academy of Vocal Music Jeffrey Skidmore - conductor Bradley Smith - Evangelist Lawrence White - Jesus Marcus Farnsworth - Pilate Elizabeth Adams, Angela Hicks - soprano Martha McLorinan - alto Paul Bentley-Angell, James Robinson - tenor Bach's 'St John Passion' tells the profound human drama of Christ's last days with utterly transfixing music. The pulsating opening chorus sets the mood, and we are drawn to share the anger of the mob, to empathize with Pilate's predicament, and to feel the anguish of the solo arias, heightened by the melancholic sounds of the period instruments - not least the tender agony of 'Es ist vollbracht' (It is finished). Ex Cathedra are delighted to give their traditional Good Friday performance as part of THSH's Birmingham Classical season. Sung in German with English surtitles. There will be a 30-minute interval and the concert will end at approximately 4:15pm.
