The Way of Sorrow

St. Nicholas Church

Pärt’s setting of the St. John Passion is perhaps one of the best-known choral works of the late twentieth-century. The gospel narrative speaks with direct intimacy, through a small piquantly-voiced instrumental and vocal ensemble and rigorous patterning of simple ideas. Despite the economical means, the work has a breathtaking nobility equal to its subject matter, and offers us a chance to follow the via dolorosa in a new and powerfully immediate way.

The lineup of performers includes Galway’s most wellknown players alongside some of the brightest young Irish singers emerging on the European scene.
