Mendelssohn/Bach St. Matthew Passion

Media Title

The St. Matthew Passion is revered today as one of the great masterpieces of the choral repertoire, but along with much of Bach’s vast output, it sank into obscurity in the decades following his death. When the 20-year-old Felix Mendelssohn conducted a performance of the Passion in 1829, it helped to inspire a widespread revival of Bach’s music, and fueled the growth of choral societies across Europe and the United States. The founding of Mendelssohn Club in 1874 was inspired by this revival.
