Passiontide comes early with the dramatic St Matthew Passion with the Choir of King's College Cambridge and Academy of Ancient Music. Ex-doctor James Gilchrist (I have sung this piece with him) and baritone David Wilson-Johnson take the roles of the Evangelist and Christus.

Find out more about "period" or historically informed performance here. Here are videos of Part I and Part II.

Tickets cost £19.50 to £59.50 and can be booked online via this link. Online savers cost £9.50 and can be booked via this link.

Please note the early start time of 18.30. We will meet at the basement bar during the interval.

    A great performance from all involved - KCC, AAM, extra children ripieni, plus stunning solos from Reiko Ichise (viola da gamba), Dr James Gilchrist (Evangelista) and David Wilson-Johnson (Christus). The only small point is that the boys are rather polite when baying for blood, instead of spitting out the words "Sind blitze, sind donner" with relish. I now have "Wir setzen uns" stuck for the next week - lovely!
