Emotional reunion with St Matthew Passion

One year ago I was a part of the successful stage production of St Matthew Passion (by J S Bach) at Folkoperan, Stockholm. Tonight, in Vårfrukyrkan Enköping, I had my first reunion with the masterpiece since last year and it touched me deeply. This music is as soulful and beautiful as it is brilliant composed, and it's always a joy being a part!

Performing tonight were:
Hannah Holgersson, soprano
Ivonne Fuchs, alto
Niklas Engquist, evangelist
Mathias Brorson, Jesus
Teit Kanstrup, bass, Pilate
Camerata Vocalis
Baroque ensemble
Jonas Marmbrandt, conductor
