The legacy of J. S. Bach constitutes a fascinating cosmos full of musical beauty, profound faith and human emotions

References to topics from the New Testament, chiefly the life and death of Jesus Christ, are among the frequent topics of the setting. Thanks to Bach’s immortal music, deeds of the Saviour come alive in front of us with extraordinarily direct communicability.
