The St Matthew Passion

I have lots of favourite bits.

What's yours?

As it's not quite Good Friday, I'll go for my favourite bass aria No 65 Mache dich, mein Herze, rein, which my vocal score (Barenreiter Urtext, and it's a singing translation, so no complaining please, ) gives as Let my heart be pure as Thine.

here with Dietrich Fischer- Dieskau. Don't feel in the mood for a super fast, no vibrato, vegetarian rendition.
