St John Passion from Isolation

We were truly devastated to have to cancel our Easter concerts, so we have been working really hard in collaboration with production company Positive Note to bring you a really special performance of Bach’s St John Passion recorded by the Oxford Bach Soloists and many guest artists from their isolation locations.
