Description
The St. John Passion SWV 481, with its full title “History of the Passion and Death of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ According to the Evangelist St. John”, is counted among the most frequently performed works of Heinrich Schütz. Other than the later passions by Johann Sebastian Bach, the original scoring does not include instrumental accompaniment. To enable a presentation of the passion by a wider circle of performers, however, the composer and church musician Arnold Mendelssohn (1855–1933) has developed this arrangement with organ or piano accompaniment, being a harmonic framework and new tone color at the same time. The edition also suggests chorales from the “Evangelisches Gesangbuch” for a possible active participation of the congregation.
