Bach’s ‘St. Matthew Passion’

Vanderbilt Chorale and Symphonic Choir Blair Children’s Chorus Vanderbilt University Orchestra Tyler Nelson, Evangelist Tucker Biddlecombe, conductor Gayle Shay, director

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, first performed on Good Friday 1727, is widely considered one of the crowning artistic achievements of Western civilization. Bach’s interpretation of the Last Supper and the crucifixion of Christ is the perfect marriage of music and text, incorporating chapters 26 and 27 of the Gospel of Matthew. Vanderbilt’s production is unusual in that it is a full staging of the work featuring Blair professor Tyler Nelson playing the role of the Evangelist. The work will be sung in different languages — English, German, French, Arabic — representing the universal appeal this work has held over diverse audiences for centuries. Performed with English supertitles.

Presented with gratitude to Mark Dalton for his generous support of the Blair School
