Taking Note: St Matthew Passion

I caught a super programme earlier today which may be of interest to some, a half-hour documentary about the St Matthew Passion:

Taking Note
Bach's St Matthew Passion
Conductor Paul Spicer, Singer Emma Kirkby and Musical expert Simon Heighes discuss how it feels to perform monumental piece of music, and why the music has such a profound effect on audiences.
