The Mocking of Christ by Titian.

The Bach Society of Christ the King Lutheran Church will be performing the Matthäuspassion (Passion according to St. Matthew) during this coming Holy Week.

Palm Sunday March 16, 2008 • 5:00 p.m.
Tuesday March 18, 2008 • 7:00 p.m.
Good Friday March 21, 2008 • 3:00 p.m.

Melissa Givens, soprano; Gerrod Pagenkopf, countertenor
Daniel Buchanan, tenor; Paul Busselberg, bass
Randolph Lacy, Evangelist; Mathhias Weichert, Jesus
Bach Choir & Orchestra • Christfried Brödel, guest conductor

All performances will be in the Nave of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Houston’s Rice Village.

This promises to be a stellar performance not only from Herr Brödel, the guest conductor, but also from the stunning voice of Mathhias Weichert (who will be singing Jesus as he did with us two years ago, Herr Brödel conducting then, too).

Two warnings: Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is about three hours (including an intermission and, later on, a short pause). Also, get there at least an hour early. Our Holy Week performances are the most-popular thing we do throughout the year, and the house will fill quickly. The early bird gets the worm.  :-)
