 J.S. Bach’s contract as Cantor of St. Thomas’ church in Leipzig

stipulated––“In order to preserve the good order in the churches, [he would]

so arrange the music that it shall not make an operatic impression, but

rather incite the listeners to devotion”. J.S. Bach's fusion of the liturgical and

the dramatic provides a view of Christ’s final hours, and the Christian

believer’s response to this story in a manner beyond the greatest of Baroque

operas.
