Did you know that Bach was not the only one to compose an impressive St Matthew Passion? The piece composed by German Baroque composer Johann Heinrich Rolle also deserves to be heard. “Rolle created a passion with musically sensitive narration that seeks to pierce the heart. The Kölner Akademie are well aware of this, as their captivating performance demonstrates,” the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad wrote.
