Telling the story of the Passion, the final days of Jesus’ life, is a tradition that dates back to the fourth century. This originally took the form of a liturgical chant, but during the sixteenth century, music and theology became tightly bound and from this time, the Passion began to be sung and performed in different ways. JS Bach’s St John’s Passion is a wonderful way to reflect on Good Friday about the approach of Easter Day.
