Make this your soundtrack this Holy Week!

Appreciating beauty is one way we can get a glimpse of God in this world. And beautiful music is one of the best ways we can do this.

J.S. Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” is universally considered a musical and spiritual masterpiece. With words drawn from Scripture, and music written by one of history’s greatest composers, the piece takes you through the suffering of Our Lord in a way like few other things can.

If you’re wondering about what’s going on while you’re listening, you can read about the structure of the piece here.

Enjoy!
