Quire Cleveland presents the St. Matthew Passion by Richard Davy

Among the most dramatic musical works from the early Renaissance is the setting of the  St. Matthew Passion by the English composer Richard Davy (c.1465–1538). Preserved incomplete in the  Eton Choirbook, it has been reconstructed by Quire Cleveland’s Artistic Director,  Ross Duffin. Quire sings it in English, using a translation by William Tyndale, Davy’s contemporary at Magdalen College, Oxford. 

We present the entire concert, recorded on April 9, 2017, on this episode of Cleveland Ovations. 

Ross Duffin, conductor
Owen Macintosh, tenor (The Evangelist)
Jeffrey Strauss, baritone (Jesus)
