Storyline

J.S. Bach's ''St. John Passion'' is one of the most beloved pieces in the entire Western canon. In recent years, it has also become one of the most controversial concertized works, especially in regard to the treatment of Jews both in the Gospel text and in the musical traditions of passions and passion plays. ''Performing the Passion: J.S. Bach and the Gospel'' according to John' engages these complex issues while documenting a glorious performance by the music students of Yale's Schola Cantorum, conducted by Simon Carrington. Bach's breathtaking music is accompanied by commentary from leading Biblical scholars, musicologists and performers who lend their expertise to the narrative and illuminate the many challenges of bringing historic works to modern audiences.
