Bach's St. John's Passion

A suitable post for the Friday before Easter. Bach's St. John's Passion is the second most beautiful passion ever composed, surpassed only by his St. Matthew's Passion. The linked video is a complete live performance of almost two hours by one of the leading Bach ensembles of the day: Bach Collegium Japan directed by Masaaki Suzuki. Simply beautiful.
