The special thing about this Brockes Passion by Handel is that not one gospel is central, but that the passion story is composed of all four gospels. It is a passion with operatic features.

Not only the text, but also the music is particularly intense. It is one of the first oratorios that Handel wrote, before the Messiah and Judas Maccabeus. Yet you can already hear a lot about what makes his later oratorios so unique. From the beginning of the Brockes Passion, Handel shows his most passionate and emotional side. In this music he uses techniques from opera to make the drama of the Passion story more clear.
