Aria from St Matthew's Passion, BWV 244 (Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben)
Bach, JS

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 1750) composed St. Matthew s Passion, BWV 244, in the 1720s and it is believed that the first performance took place on April 11, 1727 at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. The music arranged here for Flute and Piano is the heart-wrenching aria, 'Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben,' extracted from the middle of the second part of the work. To set the scene, the aria comes after Jesus has been presented to the multitudes in a fast a furious, rowdy double orchestra and choir exclamation; and is condemned to death by crucifixion. Out of this outcry, the solitary flautist and soprano singer reflect on the question of sin, judgement and punishment. In this most hauntingly vulnerable aria, Bach manages to find both beauty and fragility to reflect upon this question.

This edition, by Elizabeth Walker, presents both the original ornamentation as written and an alternate written-out guide to period style.
