St Peter's Singers' presentation of Music for Good Friday is devoted this year to JS Bach's dramatic and moving setting of the Good Friday story, as told by St John. Sung in English, the story is narrated by the tenor Evangelist, with Jesus a calm and dignified presence amidst the frenzy of the mob and his rather flaky followers. All offset by songs that are by turn passionate, reflective, despairing and peaceful.
