CSO-Bach Passions

Selections from Bach’s PASSIONS

**Special edition on baroque instruments**

The CSO Baroque Ensemble & Belle Voci present selections from Bach’s PASSIONS, conducted by Paula DeWit, on March 22 & 23

A Dramatic integration of scripture, poetry and Hymns. Bach’s sublime settings create a portrayal of Passion that is both profoundly human and divine.
The St John & St Matthew Passion are two of Bach’s most famous pieces of sacred music telling the Biblical story of Jesus crucifixion.
