Win us with honest trifles

The Friday OT: Netherlands Bach Society; Erbarme dich (from St Matthew Passion BWV 244 (39))

Arguably JS Bach most famous aria, the haunting Erbarme dich is below and on the YouTube here:

Often sung by a female voice these days, but the Netherlands Bach Society does it oldskool. This is the Matthew 26: 75 moment in The Passion of St. Matthew (whole thing here) when Peter denies Jesus three times, hears a rooster crow and realizes what he has just done.

And he went out and wept bitterly.” To get you in the mood for next Thursday.
