[German Version]

are the sections of the Passion in which groups speak (apostles, the council, the people, etc.). The assignment of different pitches to the parts of Jesus, the evangelist, soloists, and the turba goes back to the 9th century. Originally recitation of Passion was assigned to a single officiant; later it was dramatized by separating the different roles (Passion music: I).


Bibl.: see Passion music.
