For Passion Week:

Malaysia Bach Festival Singers and Orchestra and Ton Koopman perform a chorale from Bach’s “St. John Passion”.

O help, Christ, Son of God,
through your bitter passion,
that we, being always obedient to you,
might shun all vice,
your death and its cause
consider fruitfully,
so that, although poor and weak,
we might offer you thanksgiving!

… and as close as I will come to the opera for the time being. Sadly we should have been in rehearsals for this right now.

Bravo to these fine musicians, though!
