As part of Radio 3's Baroque Spring, a performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion live from Philharmonic Hall in Cracow. Andrew Parrott conducts the paired-down forces of Capella Cracoviensis, as he believes the work would have been performed in Bach's time, with a small orchestra and just a few singers taking all the solo and chorus parts.
