Summary
The renowned St. Thomas Boys Choir of Leipzig, which boasts J.S. Bach as a former cantor, celebrates its 800th anniversary with an extraordinary interpretation of the St. Matthew Passion. The Guardian praised how "the harmonic lines interwove with a transcendence that can only be achieved through living, eating and working together". This Accentus Music production is the only audio-visual release of Bach's St. Matthew Passion, performed by the choir for which it was written, in St. Thomas Church, Leipzig, where the composer worked and is buried
