JS BACH | St John Passion

Programme

JS BACH  St John Passion

About This Concert

An Eastertide performance of JS Bach’s seasonal masterpiece performed on Palm Sunday in the wonderful setting of St Nicholas Church, Arundel.

Telling the story of the Passion, the final days of Jesus’s life, is a tradition that dates back to the fourth century. This originally took the form of a liturgical chant, but during the sixteenth century, music and theology became tightly bound and from this time, the Passion began to be sung and performed in different ways. JS Bach’s St John’s Passion is a wonderful way to reflect on Good Friday about the approach of Easter Day.

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
