Arvo Pärt: 'Passio'

Arvo Pärt: 'Passio'

King's College Chapel
United Kingdom

Ben Johnson Pilate
Edward Grint Christ
Choir of King’s College Cambridge
Stephen Cleobury

Arvo Part’s setting of the Passion according to St John is among his greatest works, rarely performed and yet, through recordings, one of his most popular.

The music is simple, austere and hypnotic with undulating, ‘bell-like’ harmonies. Yet as the story steadily unfolds, the power and drama of the text takes over. The effect is ‘profoundly moving, unsettling and humbling’ THE GUARDIAN.

The concert runs without an interval for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
