The Chapel Choir’s cycle of Baroque masterworks brings them back to J.S. Bach’s St John Passion this season with two performances on the weekend before Easter. Halley describes the piece as “possibly Bach’s most intense and dramatic work.” Halley explains, “Bach was clearly moved by the gospel texts and the profound effect of these words on him has resulted in music of enormous power and poignancy.”
The choir will be joined by 17 instrumentalists playing period instruments (led by Marie Nadeau-Tremblay), and 6 vocal soloists from the early music scene in Canada and the U.K, including Charles Daniels (Evangelist), Alexander Dobson (Jesus), Philippe Gagné (Tenor arias),Clayton Kennedy (Pilate & Bass arias), Janelle Lucyk (Soprano arias), and Francis Bamford (Alto arias). The University of King’s College has won a reputation for presenting world-class performances of the great Baroque masterworks right here in Nova Scotia.
