This is a setting of the Passion, modelled on those of Bach. It uses texts from the Gnostic tradition, and presents a slightly different perspective on the gospel story; it could be said to be a 'gnostic' passion for the modern 'agnostic', and version for modern times. To quote from Gnosis.org:

'GNOSTICISM IS THE TEACHING based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth.'
