This is an excerpt of another video on Youtube explicitly not owned by me. I just shortened the original video just to one of the most beautiful choir arias known to man. I made this to spread the message among my friends. Hope this is o.k. Tagged close to the original.

A recording of the Michaelstein Telemann Chamber Orchestra at St. Mary's Church, Mühlhausen.

6. Chorus:

Du wollest dem Feinde nicht geben die Seele deiner Turteltauben.

In Mühlhausen, Bach worked at the "Divi Blasii" church, but had much better conections to the nearby St. Mary's Church, where the preacher Georg Christian Eilmar was a great admirer of Bach's music. St. Mary's, Thuringia's second biggest church (is a fünfschiffige Hallenkirche), was built at the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries and was made famous through the activities of Thomas Müntzer in 1525.

Bach's working life in the Reichs city of Mühlhausen in 1707-08 - brief though it was - yielded important church music compositions. To mark the Council Election he composed this cantata, which was performed in St. Mary's Church on 4th February 1708.

The Telemann Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1952 by Eitelfriedrich Thom. It devotes itself chiefly to performing works by unknown composers of the 16th to 18th centuries in the middle German region. The orchestra uses historical instruments.
