Music in the Morning No. 353 – Bach


Once more I invite Bach to bring us his genius.  This morning we have the first movement of Actus Tragicus.  Wikipedia says this,

Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit (God's time is the very best time), BWV 106, also known as Actus Tragicus, is a sacred cantata composed by Johann Sebastian Bach in Mühlhausen, intended for a funeral.

A mere 2½ minutes but there is nothing else ‘mere’ about this wonderfully atmospheric piece which (re)turns us to face God.

Actus Tragicus Mvt 1: Sonatina                           Johann Sebastian Bach
