The Easter joy continues

...with this performance of the opening Sinfonia from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Easter Oratorio conducted by Philippe Herreweghe (4:07).

The Easter joy practically jumps off the screen at you.

Okay, so it’s not the Leningrad Cowboys and the Red Army Chorus singing “Sweet Home Alabama,” but hey, you can’t have everything.

Except that you can. Here is the entire Bach Easter Oratorio (45:21) conducted by somebody else.

And for those of you who wish every day were Christmas, here is Bach’s Magnificat (41:19).
