David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion is a modern, minimalist, and deeply moving interpretation of the Passion story from a secular perspective. The biblical story is replaced with Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl, which tells the story of a little girl sent out into the bitter winter by an abusive father to sell matches. This work is Lang’s response to Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, and each of the chorales is a tribute to Bach in English.
