Dunedin Consort’s interpretation of Bach’s Matthew Passion is now an established highlight of Edinburgh’s concert calendar. As Bach did, we use eight solo voices in place of a the more common large chorus, generating a kaleidoscopic range of vocal combinations and sonorities. We combine these voices with the supremely expressive sounds of our period instruments, creating an astounding range of emotional expression and interpretative depth.
