JS Bach - St Matthew Passion

JS Bach - St Matthew Passion

The renowned Birmingham Bach Choir return to Lichfield for a very special performance of Bach’s most famous Oratorio.

Conducted by their Music Director Paul Spicer the Choir will be joined by world class performers:

Birmingham Bach Choir

Paul Spicer: Conductor

Musical and Amicable Society: Orchestra

Ripieno Choir: choristers from Lichfield Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum


Thomas Hobbs: Evangelist

Henry Waddington: Christus

Sophie Bevan: soprano

Lawrence Zazzo: countertenor

Ed Lyon: tenor

Stephan Loges: bass

Paul Spicer says: Being able to programme and conduct Bach’s St Matthew Passion is like winning the lottery! To my mind it is the greatest work created by the human mind – no more, no less. 

To be able to perform it in the stunning surroundings of Lichfield Cathedral with a superb choir, world class soloists and orchestra is one of the greatest privileges imaginable. 

The 9th of March 2024 will be a red letter day when we really hope to bring Bach’s ‘Great’ Passion to life once more and give a performance which will live long in the memory of audience and performers alike. Come and share this experience with us.


Saturday 9th March 2024 - 7pm (Lichfield Cathedral)
