This month we are happy to present to you a great Passion oratorio that
Johann Sebastian Bach in all likelihood pieced together for his last
Passion service. He took a work by Carl Heinrich Graun, a composer whom he
admired, and expanded it to produce a magnificent two-part Passion. To it
he added compositions of his own authorship and others by his friend Georg
Philipp Telemann. The result was a pasticcio, a new work consisting of
various set pieces. This practice was very common during Bach’s times. Both
composers on whose works Bach drew were contemporary stars who did not at
all object to this practice, especially since they occasionally operated in
precisely the same way. The composer Georg Philipp Telemann saw no reason
to complain about the reuse of his works. Although we do have quite a bit
of background information about the Passion, the riddle surrounding it is
only beginning to be solved. Accordingly, Bach scholarship can only hope
that additional sources will be found and prove Johann Sebastian Bach’s
authorship once and for all. The work perhaps even offers evidence pointing
to one of his lost Passions, and it might even be his last Passion oratorio
– which, as the current state of research knowledge sees things – can only
have been written during the years following 1733.
