In the Hands of God
Since I am a great fan of Bach's religious music, I was wondering where I could find a reliable copy of Bach's "B minor Mass", "St. Matthew's Passion", or "St. John's Passion". Now if anyone can tell me where to find these things I would be very happy, but they must meet certain criteria:<br><br> 1. It must be electronic (preferably a MIDI, although I wouldn't say 'no' to a live performance [img]" alt="grin" title="grin[/img]),<br><br> 2. The file should not be too big (I'm on a 56K connection),<br><br> 3. It should not require special software to play it (Once again the 56K connection comes into play; I can't spend hours trying to download the software),<br><br> 4. I don't want to have to become a member of a site in order to download the music,<br><br> 5. I don't want to have to pay for the music (Yes, I know, I'm cheap [img]" alt="evilgrin" title="evilgrin[/img]).<br><br><br>Anyone who can give me good information on any of the 3 pieces mentioned above has my full gratitude.

In the midst of your sadness and woe, when you are tormented and afflicted, have comfort! God's will is done.

I would suggest that if you are going to listen to these that you should definetly get a live recording...I think alot is lost in the midi versoins. In my opinion I think the St. Matthews Passion is one of the most beatiful pieces of music ever written. For the better part of a semester during my time at school I would try and listen through the whole Passion on Saturday afternoons. I would also suggest reading a translation of the text while listening. It is truely an amazing work of art. I would suggest the recordings done by Eliot Gardnier. I have always enjoyed them.<br><br>St. Matthews Passion<br><br><br>Mass in B minor<br><br><br>I know there kind of expensive, but I think well worth the money.<br><br>Daniel<br><br>Edited: I made the URL's "clickable". How about learning how to do this simple task for the benefit of those who want to visit these links? - Pilgrim [img]" alt="grin" title="grin[/img]
