St. Matthew Passion @ St Ignatius

In Uncategorized on April 6, 2009 at 1:03 pm

It’s not an annual event, but it seems like it. The way that Kent Trittle presents this monumental work seems different each time. I’m not sure if the choruses are place in different places or some thing I missed, but each time it is different. Sort of the first time you heard it feeling. Three plus hours is almost like real time and it is sooo effective. The music is Bach and there is not much to improve on there and the message becomes more intimate with each hearing! I told some one the story: a nice Jewish boy gets in trouble with the Romans about a Passover dinner, and it made it more universal to me . Even though I was being “cute” it made a point!!

The Passion is so wonderful that I can’t say anything just wait for next year to see it again
