J. S. Bach: St Matthew Passion BWV 244 (Vocal Score)

Books | SATB

Catalogue No: BA5038A
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

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.
