Easter is everywhere the time for passions. For Reinoud Van Mechelen the time for passions means the Evangelist’s time. He sang his very first Evangelist in Bach’s St. John’s Passion in 2014 in Liverpool. Subsequently William Christie committed him as Evangelist again in St. John’s Passion at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw followed by a tour with Les Arts Florissants. Then a regular collaboration emerged with the Collegium Vocale and Philippe Herreweghe.
Within this year’s Easter time, Reinoud Van Mechelen is joining the Collegium Vocale and Philippe Herreweghe on tour throughout Europe singing the Evangelist in Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion.
