bach’s johannes passion, one of my favorites master pieces. which i was so lucky i could listen live in leipzig past year, in the same church in which it was premiered 280 years ago. :0 after revising the work bach discarded these three arias… which are by the way one of the most beautiful, colorful and powerful ones amongst the hundred hi wrote. specially this himmel reise with it’s punk cello and those kids singing like angels in the background. in bach we trust.
Bach – Himmel, Reise, Welt, Erbebe, BWV 245A
Bach – Zerchmettert Mich, BWV 245B
Bach – Ach Windet Euch Nicht So, Geplagte Seelen, BWV 245C
