The great Advent chorale Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland ("Now Come, Savior of the Heathens") was adapted from a plainchant melody by Martin Luther himself, and has inspired countless composers throughout the ages. This Bach Vespers centers around Johann Sebastian's take on this powerful melody: a stunning cantata which combines elements of the French, German, and Italian baroque compositional styles.
