GraceMusic Presents: Bob Chilcott's St. John's Passion
On Sunday, March 18 at 4pm, GraceMusic presents Bob Chilcotts St. John Passion.  Brandon Beachamp conducts the Grace Church Choir, orchestra, organ and soloists in this contemporary, yet classical, setting of the Passion story.  Originally written for the Choir of Wells Cathedral (UK), Chilcotts Passion is modeled after the great settings by J. S. Bach.  The hour-long performance features David Vanderwal (Trinity  Church, Wall St, NYC) as Evangelist and Peter Walker (St. Luke in the Fields, NYC) as Jesus.   As in Bachs Passions, the role of the choir is to play the part of the crowd or a group of soldiers within the narrative.  The choir also sings four meditations that offer reflection throughout the Passion.  In the way that Bach used chorales to include his listening audience in the performance, Chilcott wrote five original hymns to familiar texts.

Written and first performed in 2013, Chilcotts Passion made its US debut in 2015 but remains a relatively underperformed work.  Chilcott tells the drama and richness of the Passion story in a direct, but sensitive, manner.  His use of English poetry from the 13th to early 17th centuries in the choral meditations express deeply human responses to death, life, and our relationship to the world and with God.  Whether the listener approaches this piece from a musical or liturgical perspective, Bob Chilcotts St. John Passion is sure to connect with the audience in a deeply personal way.  If you missed last years performance at Grace,  youve got a 2nd chance to hear what one person described as the most moving musical experience of a lifetime.

The Observer has called Bob Chilcott  a contemporary hero of British choral music. He is currently principal guest conductor of the BBC Singers and a prolific composer.  He sang in the choir of Kings College, Cambridge both as a  boy and as a university student,  and was a member of the Kings Singers for 12 years.  He was conductor of the chorus at the Royal College of Music in London for 7 years,  and began composing in 1997.  His work  in various genres has been commissioned and performed worldwide; he often conducts his own premiers.  

Tickets to the St. John Passion are HERE and at the door: $20 adults, $15 seniors, $5 students;  children 12 and under are free.
