Bach’s St John and St. Matthew Passions are popular and well established in concert life. Of a third, the Markus Passion, only Picander’s original libretto is extant. Parallel arias from various cantatas replace the lacking music for arias, and instead of the lost recitative and the turba [crowd] choruses, the spoken gospel text is bilingually published in this edition (in German/English). The freshly-prepared performance material including a detailed commentary is supplemented by a newly-arranged piano reduction.
