Good Friday: Bach St. Matthew Passion

Last year at St. Peter's, Edmund performed the unusual feat of singing the role of Jesus, the bass arias, and every chorus in the St. John Passion in its original liturgical context. This year, he's back to do the same in the St. Matthew Passion. Joining the choir of St. Peter's and a superb period orchestra under the direction of Balint Karosi.

Cathedral Choir: Pärt, Kodály, Stravinsky

Great Choir: Arvo Pärt’s Miserere; with additional works by Stravinsky and Kodály

A piece ideal for the spacious acoustics of the Cathedral, Arvo Pärt’s Miserere utilizes sparse but intense harmonies, along with perfectly timed silences, to fill the space in a unique and mystical way. Accompanying this masterpiece are other choral gems: Bogoroditse Dyevo and Otche nash’ by Igor Stravinsky, and Zoltán Kodály’s Laudes Organi, a virtuosic extravaganza for chorus and organ, which will be accompanied by Associate Music Director Raymond Nagem.

Amber Evans, Soprano
Daniel Moody, Countertenor
Marc Day, Tenor
Michael Steinberger, Tenor
Joseph Beutel, Bass
Raymond Nagem, Organ
