About the event

Committed to expanding the audience for great choral classics, Dessoff is excited to bring a new English translation of Bach’s masterpiece to Mother AME Zion Church in Central Harlem. This new English translation of St. John Passion is by Madeleine Marshall, commissioned by the Bach Society of Houston and their music Director, Rick Erickson. Merriweather sang the role of Jesus and the bass solos in the Bach Society of Houston premiere. By using this new, contemporary English translation, all audience members will be able to have an immediate understanding of the Passion story.
