Easter Day celebrations at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig were grand and glorious affairs. Bach created a work that brings the characters of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Peter, and John to the liturgical stage with no expenses spared in its lavish orchestration that includes the brilliance of trumpets and timpani, and the sweet strains of pastoral recorders. One of Bach’s earliest cantatas is paired with the quintessentially noble “A Mighty Fortress.”
