St Mary Abbots Church

Last concert

The last concert was a special candlelit performance of Bach's St John Passion performed in the splendid surroundings of St Mary Abbots Church, Kensington on Palm Sunday, March 25th 2018, re-creating the atmosphere and intimate scale of the original performance.

This work, the 1724 version, was performed in English by a combined professional and amateur chorus.

Again this year, it was performed on period instruments, at baroque pitch.
