Full score and performance material available for hire. Both Mendelssohn versions available in one edition.

Felix Mendelssohn can claim the credit of having ushered in the Bach-Renaissance with his arrangement and performance of the St Matthew Passion. It was revived for the first time in the Berlin Singakademie on 11 March 1829, one hundred years after its premiere in Leipzig’s Thomaskirche. A second arrangement was performed in Leipzig in 1841.

Originally only available on hire as part of the edition published by Bärenreiter in 2009, this Vocal score is now available on sale. It enables both the Berlin and the later Leipzig versions to be performed.

A concordance provides information on the respective sequence of movements and their relation to the Bach Works Catalogue (BWV) and the New Bach Edition.
