St Matthew Passion

A text on the facade of a house in the city of Naarden refering to the performance of the "Mattheus Passion" ( St. Matthew Passion) of composer Johan Sebastian Bach. Every year before Eeaster his three hour music is performed in the Big Church in Naarden in attendance of the complete government with Ministers and Prime Minister. 

The text is about : After St. Matthew Passion, people humming here around, greet each other and all together weaving a web of voices in the little streets.

It is a bit difficult to translate but I hope you understand the  message.

Through the city are more texts on walls about Bach and the St. Matthews Passion.

Here ia picture of the Big Church in Naarden where the performance takes place.
