"Welt und Himmel" from Markus Passion (Bach/Boysen)
One of the last arias from the Markus Passion, for Soprano and Violin (and orchestra). It is a moment of relief and hope after the Crucifixion of Jesus. For those who are religious, it can be an especially emotional moment, as it is the incredible moment after the climax of the Passion story. For the non-religious, it is possible to relate to the moment after the fulfillment of a destiny, the sacrifice that saves many.
Again, the music is parodied (similar music but different text) according to the traditions of the time. The music also appears in an instrumental version by Bach, as an alternate 3rd movement to the 6th Sonata for Violin and obligato harpsichord.
The performers are Musica Poetica (@musicapoetica) and Cantus Thuringia under the direction of Jorn Boysen. The concert was recorded live and unedited in Den Haag in 2016, on period instruments at 415Hz. Violinist is @bengy.
Music is from Bach, BWV 120a
Welt und Himmel nehmt zu Ohren
Jesus schreiet überlaut.
Allen Sündern sagt er an,
Dass ihm nun genug getan,
Dass das Eden aufgebaut,
Welches wir zuvor verloren.
Earth and heaven holds their ears
As Jesus cries out deafeningly.
He undertook all sins,
Now enough has been done to him,
For Eden to be built again,
Which we had lost before.
