Et resurrexit, et resurrexit

Along with the “Art of the Fugue” and “The Musical Offering”, Johann Sebastian’s Great Mass (the “B minor”) is the summation of his life’s work. Completed in 1749, the year before he died, and organized in four folders, the middle of the Credo errupts with the proclamation:  “Et resurrexit, et resurrexit”, “and he rose again.”

Here the incomparable Karl Richter (who grew up singing in Bach’s old church in Leipzig) leads the Munich Bach Choir and Orchestra in a performance from 1969.
