St. Mark Passion
(Reconstruction by Simon Heighes)
Directed by John Abberger

Of the five complete passions Bach wrote, only two survive. 
We invite you to experience what might have been, with our presentation of this
stunning reconstruction of his St. Mark Passion by Simon Heighes. 
Based on the surviving libretto by Picander, the librettist for the Matthew Passion,
and fashioned from arias and choruses from Bach’s own works, 
a vocal ensemble of 9 singers together with an intimate instrumental
ensemble will allow us to present this work as it would have been performed by Bach.

Soloists include
Ellen McAteer and Agnes Zsigovics, soprano
Daniel Taylor, alto
Asitha Tennekoon, tenor and Brett Polegato, bass
