Musical settings of the story of Christ’s Passion, as recounted by St. Matthew, date back to antiquity. First incorporated into the liturgy as a chant for Palm Sunday, the Passion text of St. Matthew developed over the centuries into elaborate settings for choir & soloists with instrumental accompaniment. J.S. Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” is widely acknowledged as the pinnacle of this tradition & as one of the greatest achievements of Western music. Here Reeves offers 21 verse meditations directly inspired by Bach’s masterpiece. Written & arranged to be heard as well as read, these eloquent poems capture Reeves’s own experience of hearing Bach’s work performed in various cities around the world. The poems are introduced & linked by short passages of prose.
