Song of the Week: A Little Bach

Here's a little something different this week.  Yesterday was Easter, so we'll go with some sacred music.  First up is the first movement of JS Bach's Easter Oratorio.  If you're so inclined, there's a different recording of the full version also available on YouTube (it clocks in at 40 minutes).

Next, we have a Bach transcription by Leopold Stokowski. This is the Chorale from the Easter Cantata. This one is exceptionally beautiful.
