Stile Antico

Our season closes on Good Friday with a rare performance of Sebastiani's St. Matthew Passion with the BEMF's own Chamber & Vocal Ensembles led by Paul O'Dette and Stephen Stubbs on April 18 at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall.

Sebastiani's St. Matthew Passion is one of the most sublime and deeply moving passion settings of the late 17th century. The warmly lyrical vocal writing is accentuated by accompanying the Evangelist with a consort of viols, and Jesus with the violins. James Taylor, one of the pre-eminent Bach Evangelists of our time, will use his communicative powers to enliven this important yet rarely heard predecessor of Bach’s Passions.
