Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March- 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and musician of the late Baroque period. Since the 19th-century Bach revival he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers in the history of Western music. 

The Passio secundum Joannem or St John Passion (German: Johannes-Passion), BWV 245, is a Passion or oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach, the older of the surviving Passions by Bach. It was written during his first year as director of church music in Leipzig and was first performed on April 7, 1724, at Good Friday Vesers at the St Nicholas Church.

Alex Ayre was a British recorder teacher and performer who arranged over 500 pieces, of mainly English Renaissance and Baroque music, for recorder ensembles.
