INVICTUS: A Passion - Easter Concert

Perth Symphonic Chorus presents the Australian premiere of INVICTUS: A Passion, by Howard Goodall
and J.S. Bach's Cantata Christ Lag in Todes Banden BWV 4

Music for Easter Sunday

Bach's immortal cantata was composed in 1707 and has become synonymous with Easter. Based on the Gregorian chant Victimae Paschalis, Bach's setting of the Lutheran hymn is hauntingly beautiful.

Goodall's Invictus sets the passion story in a one-part oratorio with choir, soprano and tenor soloists and a chamber orchestra. Invictus (unconquered in latin) features movements with text by several poets including Emilia Lanier and Christina Rosetti. Goodall focuses on the female perspective of Christ's crucifixion including Mary Magdalene and his mother Mary.

Invictus features themes not unique to the story of Jesus Christ, with beautiful solo and choral singing, making this piece accessible to people of all faiths and beliefs.
