Shortly before his death, the composer united his artful vocal movements, the unusual variety of styles and forms of expression into a whole: a unique work, a milestone in music history, it is Bach's masterpiece and dates back to 1714: it occupies a special position. This is primarily due to the unusual variety of types of movement, forms of sound and expression, a strikingly profound word-sound relationship and an unusual degree of artistic elaboration" (C.Wolff,, Cambridge,/Mass. Leipzig 2009. "NÄGELIS apostrophising: "the greatest musical work of art of all times and peoples" op. cit, p.49
The manuscript from 1748/1749 belongs to the UNESCO World Documentary Heritage.

"We know very little abaout Bach's life. There are only a few facts to go on and our image of him is skewed by statues and paintings of a stern forbidding figure in a frock coat and a powered wig.
And then there is the music.
Bach is still the benchmark, a musical gold standard, the ultimate composer's composor, influencing countless others from Mozart to Mendelssohn, Beethoven to Brahms, etc..."
from youtube, Sir J. E. Gardiner, A passionate life for Bach
