Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantate 4: Christ Lay In Death's Bonds By Vox Luminis

21 min
Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantate 4: Christ Lay In Death's Bonds By Vox Luminis

Lamenting the death of Christ

Bach was born into a musical family. However, none of the rest of the family achieved the fame and fortune of young Johann Sebastian! This intense work features a grand choir of voices weaving in and out of each other, creating the feeling of sadness and, perhaps, panic. It tells the story of Christ being crucified and taken down from the cross. Tune in to hear the most famous of the Bach family’s music.
