Knut Nystedt (born 1915)
Immortal Bach

A variation of the beginning of Bach's choral "Komm süßer Tod" (BWV 478) which is sung initially:
Five choirs sing the same original music but in different tempi and wait at the end of each phrase.

Komm süßer Tod, komm sel'ge Ruh!
Komm, führe mich in Friede.

Come sweet death, come celestial ease!
Come, lead me in peace.

The recording shows the Monteverdi Choir Würzburg with its conductor Matthias Beckert at the memorial concert on March 16, 2008 in the Augustinerkirche commemorating the 63rd anniversary of the bombing of Würzburg.
