J. S. Bach: St. John Passion, BWV 245. Ardrew Parrott
An appropriate piece of music for today. J. S. Bach wrote at least 4, and possibly 5 passion oratorios. All but two (Matthew, John) are lost. (There is a recent reconstruction of Mark.) So which of Bach’s sons lost or sold these missing passions? Certainly not C. P. E, , who, being left handed, did not take violin lessons from his father.
