Written in 1724, J. S. Bach's St. John Passion is part of the German Lutheran passion-oratorio tradition.  The passion narrative from the Gospel of John is recounted by the Evangelist (narrator), Jesus, Peter, Pilate and various servants.  In this performance, recorded at Asbury First United Methodist Church in March 2019, Rochester's chamber choir VOICES performs with soloists and orchestra, all under the direction of Dr. William Weinert.  Ruth Phinney is your host.
