Yes, I’ve been neglecting Sunday morning and Sunday evening music. I’m just busy, and putting up all the Advent music took a lot of time. I do hope to get back to posting those come 2014, but time will tell. Meanwhile, please enjoy this bit of Bach, from a cantata he wrote for the first Sunday in Advent:

Seventh movement (soprano aria) from cantata BWV 36 “Schwingt freudig euch empor” (Soar joyfully aloft), performed by the J. S. Bach Foundation of St Gallen under Rudolf Lutz. Soloists: Nuria Rial (soprano) und John Holloway (violin). Further information on the Bach Foundation at www.bachstiftung.ch. The DVD with the complete cantata, introductory workshop and reflection lecture (in German) is available at: www.bachstiftung.ch/en/shop/items/j-s-bach-kantate-bwv-36/
