The musical composition, "The Passion According to Matthew," will be presented in Rome on March 29 in an auditorium next to the Vatican.
It was composed by Bishop Hilarion Alfeev of Vienna and Austria, representative of the Russian Orthodox Church of Moscow to the European Community.
"The Passion" will be conducted by Vladimir Fedoseev and interpreted by Russia's largest symphonic orchestra, the Petr Chajkovskij Grand Symphonic Orchestra, and by the Trethakovskij Choir.
Father Vsevolod Chaplin, deputy director of the Department for Relations with External Churches of Moscow's Patriarchate and spokesman of Patriarch Alexy II, will represent the Moscow Patriarchate.
The concert will also be attended by Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and Cardinal Paul Poupard, president of the Pontifical Councils for Culture and for Interreligious Dialogue.
The concert will be presented for the first time in Moscow two days earlier in the presence of Orthodox Patriarch Alexy II.
