We [the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment] perform Bach’s St Matthew Passion as part of Valetta International Baroque Festival in the magnificent surroundings of St Johns Co-Cathedral. 

One of the great iconic pieces of the classical canon, Bach’s St Matthew Passion retains its huge emotional impact even 300 years on from its premiere. Performed on period instruments to reveal the original colours and textures of the music it is sung here by a top-drawer cast, led by one our Principal Artists, John Butt.
