'This spirited and wide-ranging book opens up a host of original and timely perspectives on a crucial repertoire, and argues eloquently for the vital relevance and rewards Bach's Passions offer the modern world.' David Yearsley
'Butt's [is a] scholarly book, with its copious musical examples and often fascinating asides.' Glasgow Sunday Herald
Why is Bach's music still valuable? Through detailed analysis of the Passions, this 2010 book balances the traditional concern of Bach scholarship - Bach's local creative context - with an analysis of much broader cultural developments. An important contribution to the debate about the culture of 'classical music', its origins, priorities and survival.
