Quite a few musicologists consider this piece the greatest of all!
They practiced hard and long – the Arcis-Vocalisten. And now they will perform it – along with great and unique singers and musicians!

Johann Sebastian Bach transferred Luther’s wish to “sing and preach” the Christian faith like no other. The manner in which J.S.
