Description

No other Passion of Bach's is as unusually ambitious as his first work in this genre; and none of his other Passions has such a high proportion of original compositions by C.P.E. Bach himself; only the chorales and a few turba choruses were written by his father. The only Passion by Bach's son, his setting of the Matthew Passion of 1769 is a full-length work.
