Staunton Music Festival: St. Matthew Passion

  • Trinity Episcopal Church 214 West Beverly St. Staunton, VA USA (map)

The 2019 Festival concludes with one of the most powerful musical works of all time. Composed in 1727, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion was probably not heard outside Leipzig until Felix Mendelssohn’s famous revival in Berlin in 1829. Carsten Schmidt conducts this period instrument performance. (Included in the ANNUAL or SUMMER PASS)
