mattheus passion for good friday
for more than twenty years, c & i have tried to listen to bach's st. matthew's passion on good friday. once, on a good friday many years ago, we saw it live at st. thomas' cathedral in nyc.
c. found this beautiful excerpt for you to listen to. it's an outrageously perfect piece, and a wonderful way to reflect on the cycle of life, death, and rebirth that is so much in evidence in the wild and abundant burgeoning taking place with and without our efforts to make it so.
