A blessed fast to all.Under the mercy,John
I pray for all of us that we may walk with the Lord during this lenten season and remember to offer our fast and sacrifices for our beloved Catholic Church.
Bach's St Matthew Passion offers a deeply rewarding meditation during Lent .. or anytime. Of many recorded versions, a beautiful one is the Leipzig Thomanerchor, with Mauersberger, on Berlin Classics, and of course always the '79 Richter.

It is not my favorite, either, but it has subtitles for those who want to see the German text.A wonderful version also available at Youtube is the 1939 Mengelberg rendition with the Concertgebouworkest, but naturally posting Mengelberg (even in a performance shortly before the war) would be too controversial - we do not need the aggravation...NC
