Bach's St. John Passion is among the greatest settings of the Passion in the history of music. The St. John Passion underwent several fundamental changes during Bach’s lifetime. Carus offers all of these surviving versions for sale. The traditional version of the St. John Passion, using the partial autograph score, is still most often performed. Carus now offers singers a new vocal score for performance which includes the well-known texts in the established sequence without requiring any additional page turns. Please use full score and performance material of our edition Carus 31.245/00. This edition includes also the traditional version.
This work is now available in carus music, the choir app!
