First performed 300 years ago on Good Friday, April 7, 1724, “St. John Passion” is renowned for its dramatic choruses, expressive arias, and compelling narrative. It sets text from the Gospel of John, chapters 18 and 19, composed in two parts: Part I ends with Peter’s denial of Jesus and Part II concludes with Christ’s burial. Share this event on Facebook.
