Books | Orchestra, SATB

Catalogue No: TP196
Format: Books | Study Score

Version of 1736 (final version)

Bach’s St. Matthew Passion passed through several stages in its progress towards its final form, stages that today cannot be completely reconstructed. It may be taken as certain that the work was performed on Good Friday 1729 in St. Thomas’s Church, Leipzig, in a version of which the copy made by Bach’s son-in-law Johann Christoph Altnickol gives us an approximate idea. There is no earlier extant autograph score than that of the later version, which may probably be dated 1736, and on which the present edition is based.

        As people know, the St Matthew is a complex work with double choir and double orchestra and Ripieno line. Following it with this full score adds to the enjoyment.
