The St. Matthew Passion is one of the most profound and wonderful musical oratorios ever conceived. The work is performed annually at Easter world-wide - and is just as vibrant, luminous and emotionally stunning - today as it was when it written - if not more so.

I'm performing a number of the arias originally scored for voice and small orchestra. I'll leave it up to you as to whether my translations to guitar make the grade. But before you make up your mind check out "Buss und reu" - originally for transverse flutes continuo and counter-tenor.

For what it's worth, "Mache dich mein herze rein" - is possibly the most beautiful work I've ever heard.
