Bach Society: The John Dethick Memorial Concert


Sheffield Bach Society Choir returns with National Festival Orchestra to present Bach’s splendid St John Passion.

The choir sings each of Bach’s most celebrated choral works in rotation every three years, and this year presents his splendid St John Passion, written during his first year as director of church music in Leipzig and first performed in 1724.
