St Matthew Passion

by Metropolitan Bishop Hilarion of Volokolamsk

Performers

  • Moscow Synodal Choir
  • Russian Orchestra of London
  • Alexei Puzakov, conductor

The British premiere of the oratorio St Matthew Passion by Metropolitan Bishop Hilarion of Volokolamsk promises to be one of the most significant events outside Russia presenting the musical heritage of the Orthodox Church.

Theologian, church historian and composer Metropolitan Bishop Hilarion composed the oratorio in the autumn of 2006 – which is notable for being one of the only works of its kind in Russian music to depict the life and resurrection of Christ. Metropolitan Bishop Hilarion was inspired in its creation by Bach’s great masterpiece of the same name, filling the ‘old form with new content’ and using edited liturgical texts as the libretto.
