For Johann Sebastian Bach, the soul longs above all for eternity in the presence of the Beloved. His music can touch the heart in a single harmony.  The memorable raw silk voice of alto Meg Bragle will be on display in the midst of Arion’s rich orchestral colours, resulting in a performance of supreme emotional intensity. Under the direction of Jaap ter Linden, one of Arion Baroque Orchestra’s favourite collaborators.
