Imagine yourself travelling through time, in the turmoil of doubt, hope, fear and faith. Mendelssohn had revived Bach’s music by conducting the St Matthew Passion in 1829.  Here we have a programme as it would have been conceived in the 19th century, Bach’s masterpieces playing then as now a central role.
