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.
Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, BWV 61
Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, SWV 301
Übers Gebirg Maria geht
