Passionate performance

Derby Bach Choir is to perform its Spring Concert at Derby Cathedral on Saturday, March 28, starting at 7pm.

The programme features a performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, to be conducted by Richard Roddis.

The St Matthew Passion, written in 1727, is a contemplative choral work widely regarded as a masterpiece.
