The Dutch Passion tradition has reached almost iconic proportions and enjoys unprecedented popularity. Nowhere is the St Matthew Passion performed as often as in the Netherlands. For its performances of Bach’s timeless and compelling passion story, the Netherlands Chamber Choir works together with the Residentie Orkest (The Hague Philharmonic) and the monumental Pieterskerk in Leiden. British conductor Matthew Halls leads musicians, singers and a magnificent cast of soloists in a special performance of this centuries-old passion story.
