Event Details

Akranes Church Choir perform St John Passion – Bob Chilcott

Bob Chilcott’s mighty setting of words from St John’s Gospel is a dramatic yet optimistic retelling of the Passiontide story. The work combines 13th and 17th century English poetry with the King James Bible text settings and, as with Bach’s great Passion settings, the role of the Evangelist is taken by the tenor soloist, who provides a melodious narrative throughout. Including 5 well-known hymn texts set to new, original melodies, the work further confirms Chilcott’s status as one of the world’s most popular active choral composers.

Gissur Páll Gissurarson, tenor, Jóhann Smári Sævarsson, bass, Ásgeir Páll Ágústsson, bariton, Elfa Margrét Ingvadóttir, sopran, Örnólfur Kristjánsson, cello, Elín Björk Jónasdóttir, viola, Vilhjálmur Ingi Sigurðarson, trompet and Jón Bjarnason, organ.

Conductor: Sveinn Arnar Sæmundsson
