Bach's St. Mark Passion,
March 11, 2006
The music of Bach's third great passion was lost, but the
text survived. The version of this composition that will be presented on
Saturday, March 11, at Toronto's Christ Church Deer Park by the Toronto
Chamber Choir is a reconstruction. Scholars have discovered that many of the
St. Mark choruses and solos were sung to music from one of Bach's own
funeral cantatas. They have used these pieces of music to revive the
passion. The first performance of this great work in Toronto starts at 8
p.m., Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge Street.
