J. S. Bach: Gute Nacht (from “Jesu meini Freude, BWV 227)
Ensemble Pygmalion; Raphaël Pichon, Conductor

Good night, existence,
Which the world has chosen—
You do not please me.
Good night, sins,
Stay way back,
Come no more into the light.
Good night, pomp and pride!
Once and for all, you life of iniquity,
I bid you good night!

J. S. Bach: Sei num weider zufrieden
Ensemble Pygmalion; Raphaël Pichon, Conductor

Now again be content, my soul,
for the Lord does good things for you.
For you [Lord] have snatched
my soul from death,
my eyes from tears,
my foot from slipping.
I will walk in the Lord’s presence
in the land of the living.
Psalm 116:7–9
