The Ama Deus Ensemble Baroque Orchestra, Choir and Soloists, led by Valentin Radu, perform Bach’s masterpiece, the Passion According to John, on Good Friday, April 19, 2019.
First performed on Good Friday 1724, Bach’s St. John Passion is the older and the more intensely dramatic of his two extant Passions.
Musically thrilling and spiritually profound, this work narrates the Passion of Christ as told in the Gospel of John, the Passion traditionally read on good Friday. Like the St. Matthew Passion, this choral masterpiece is a towering attestation of faith–an inspiring work for this sacred day.
Tickets $10-$30, available online, by phone, or at the door.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
