St. John Passion 

J.S Bach was a man who held a deep Christian faith, and all of his works have his faith somewhere integrated in to them, and no more so it would seem than his Passion. It is only fitting, then, that the musicians playing his works treat them with utmost integrity. Under the direction of conductor Michael Messina, we heard a compelling account of the 18th and 19th chapters of the Book of John. The balance of the orchestra, choir and soloists was excellent and intonation was rarely an issue. The musician I was most amazed with, however, was Bach. Between his compositional techniques and knowledge of theology, he composed a work that can seemingly never be taken lightly. With skill and precision, he expounds upon those chapters in the Bible in such a way that even a religious skeptic would stop to consider them.
