On April 10, 2020, Bach’s St. John Passion will be performed at Leipzig’s St. Thomas Church, at the site of Bach’s tomb. The broadcast will begin at 15:00 CET (GMT+2; 9AM EDT). This innovative performance will include a tenor, a harpsichordist, and a percussionist, as well as five singers, with the addition of various artists and choirs participating via video. The tenor part, the Evangelist, and all the other characters will be sung by Icelandic tenor Benedikt Kristjánsson (see bio in English here).
Here’s a sample, “Zerfliesse, mein Herze, in Fluten der Zähren”.
Sheet music for the chorales and program notes are available via the Carus-Verlag website.
