When music and lyrics are a perfect match... The St John Passion story  was painted into breathtaking music by J S Bach during the full seated Good Friday concert in S:t Matteus kyrka, Stockholm.

I had the great honour performing with: Fredrik Strid (tenor and evangelist), Krister Zackisson (baritone), Olle Persson (baritone), Ivonne Fuchs (alto), Björn Gäfvert (cembalo), Anders Frisk (organ), Nils-Erik Sparfs Bach-ensemble, S:t Matteus Kör, Sonny Jansson (conductor). Thank you all for wonderful singing and playing!
