From St Matthew Passion by J.S.Bach

This is the soprano aria:

" BLute nur, du liebes Hertz.
Ach,ein Kind das du erzogen
das an deiner Brust gesogen
droht den Pfleger zu ermorden,
denn es ist zur Schlange geworden."

Reader Wil,
The only thing I found on a CD was a compilation of songs from the Matthew and John Passion - I guess I'll have to come to Holland to get the whole thing!
I posted a poem and painting about Good Friday - you may want to see it. Wishing you a memorable (Easter) Resurrection Day.

It *is* lovely to hear - but I can't help wondering: do the musicians know this film is now being broadcast on the internet?
I recognise quite a few of the performers, and can see that it is from some time ago, and just wondered whether they were asked about this before you posted it.
I only ask because I know how badly musicians are paid, and it would be a shame if they were being taken advantage of in any way.
