The St John Passion - 12 June 2022


We are delighted to invite Members and friends to a performance of Bach's St John Passion on Sunday 12th June 2022 at St Giles' Church, Cambridge.

The College Choir will be joined by the Cambridge Baroque Camerata, whose members include some of the UK’s finest baroque instrumentalists. Many of the solos are sung by external professionals, and we are delighted that  former Master and Honorary Fellow Lord Rowan Williams will be singing the part of Christus. We are most grateful to Mr Philip Carne MBE (1958) whose generous support has enabled this event to take place.

Tickets are £20 for alumni and guests, and can be purchased via the ADC here: St John Passion (

Resident members (current Magdalene students and Fellows) can attend free of charge, but must register for tickets. Please see the Chaplain Revd Sarah Atkins for more details.

Tickets for current students at Cambridge (non-Magdalene) can purchase tickets for a concession rate of £5 on the door.
