BACH � THE PASSION ACCORDING TO ST. MATTHEW (German: Matth�uspassion) (also, Matth�us Passion), BWV 244. (1727) St Matthew�s Gospel (Chapter 26, verse 1 to Chapter 27, verse 66).

Chorus I, II: Wir setzen uns mit Tranen nieder

The final recitative and double chorus portraying the scene and emotions of those left reflecting at the sepulchre provide, arguably the most dramatic choral music ever composed. Bach�s setting of the Passion narrative from St Matthew�s Gospel is one of the landmarks of the entire choral repertoire. The St. Matthew Passion was probably first performed on Good Friday (11 April) 1727 in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, where Bach was the Kapellmeister. He revised it by 1736, performing it again on March 30, 1736, this time including two organs in the instrumentation. Bach stands alone in this field. His two extant compositions in this form, those �according to Saint Matthew� and �according to St. John,� remain gigantic landmarks to this day. They combine the Oratorio Passion and the Passion Oratorio: the Bible text and the Chorale, and the lyrical aria and the dramatic chorus. Bach, in fact, employs every instrument that is consistent with the spirit of the Passion; and his Passions are great dramatic works, charged throughout with a deep religious sentiment.
