For Palm Sunday, the Cathedral Choir presents Bach’s vivid St. John Passion. Set to some of the master’s most accomplished music, its narrative tells the story of Jesus Christ’s final suffering, death, burial, and resurrection.

The Washington National Cathedral Combined Choirs and Baroque Orchestra perform under conductor Canon Michael McCarthy.

The concert runs just shy of 2 hours.
