Listen to La Pasión Según San Marcos

Venezuelan singers join New York high school singers in this work that take us through the final episodes in the Gospel of St. Mark. Drawing on the sounds of Latin America with texts in Spanish, Latin, and Aramaic, the piece is evocative, wildly inventive, and entirely characteristic of Osvaldo Golijov’s personal aesthetic.
