Admission £8 at the door, or

Exactly three hundred years on from its composition, Handel’s Brockes-Passion receives a very rare hearing on Saturday 19 March at Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, at the southernmost extremity of Trinity Leeds. Presented by Arts@Trinity, under director John Dawson, this event forms part of the Arts at Trinity Handel Festival. The concert begins at 4.30 pm and lasts for just under an hour and a half. The full title of Handel’s masterpiece – Jesus dying and martyred for the sins of the world – indicates a work of wide scope. There are chorale hymns for all to sing, magnificent choruses, arias and ensemble pieces for solo singers, often with obbligato instrumental accompaniment. It is within this broad framework that so much is found in common with the famous Oratorio Passions of Bach – the St John of 1723 and the St Matthew of 1729.
