Product Notes

On occasion of the 300th anniversary of the first performance of Handel's Brockes Passion in Hamburg (4 April 1719), Accent presents a 2017 live performance at the Göttingen Handel Festival with Laurence Cummings conducting the Festivalorchestra Göttingen, the NDR Chor, and an excellent cast of singers such as the Dutch soprano Johannette Zomer and the young German tenor Sebastian Kohlhepp (as Evangelist). Barthold Heinrich Brockes' passion text is one of the most frequently set in the history of music, and was the only German text used by George Frideric Handel as the basis for a large-scale sacred composition. The original score was lost, but the surviving version, which was hand-copied by Johann Sebastian Bach, makes it possible for us to hear this 1719 oratorio today.
