Following their highly successful debut in the performance of Messiah in December, the Burghclere Baroque Ensemble returns to The Church of the Ascension to perform Bach’s St. John Passion on Passion Sunday, this time directed by the Right Revd. David Stancliffe, former Bishop of Salisbury, who is an expert on the works of Bach and over his lifetime has directed almost all of his cantatas as well as countless performances of the St. John and St. Matthew Passions.
A group of eight excellent young singers is headed by rising star Hugo Hymas as the Evangelist and they perform all the choruses as well as solo parts. They are joined by instrumentalists on period instruments, featuring several of the most talented emerging young performers in this field, led by Theresa Caudle. You can downland Hugo Hymas’s biography here.
