The Bach Choir will be giving their annual performance of JS Bach's "St Matthew Passion" at the Royal Festival Hall.

Be advised that this will be an epic performance — it lasts for five hours (no joke!)

The music will be performed by the Bach Choir and Florilegium.

First established in 1875, the Bach Choir has long been regarded as one of the world’s leading choruses. The choir’s musical director is currently David Hill, who occupies a spot once held by the great English composer Vaughan Williams.
