Module Description

JS Bach has been called the Fifth Evangelist (sharing the title with Isaiah), and he brings to extraordinary expression the Christian faith, as received in the Lutheran tradition. The great attraction of Bach’s music is the interaction of faith, beauty and order. Bach, as researcher and musical scientist, brings a phenomenal mind to bear on the persuasive power of his music, always at the service of God, beauty and faith. The synergy is thrilling and repays close attention. Particular consideration will be given to the St John’s Passion, as well as selected cantatas.


Kieran O’Mahony is an Augustinian friar and a biblical scholar, with particular interest in the letters of St Paul and the Gospel according to John. He taught for many years in the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy (Dublin). Currently, he is publishing a 9-volume series called “Hearers of the Word” on the readings for Advent, Lent and Eastertide. With Jessie Rogers and Seán Goan he is on the team of the newly formed Tarsus Scripture School. For more information visit www.tarsus.ie.
