J.S. Bach's St. John Passion: Good Friday at Saint Peter's NYC

J.S. Bach: The Passion According to Saint John is presented at Saint Peter's Church in its original setting: in liturgy on Good Friday, much as it would have been at Leipzig's Nikolaikirche on April 7, 1724. Cantor Bálint Karosi, winner of the Leipzig Prize, leads the Saint Peter's Choir, Bach Collegium, and soloists from the harpsichord.
