Bach: "Wir Danken Dir, Gott"

Attached to this post are two files: the first, a stunningly good recording of the entire Cantata, BWV 29, as performed by the Netherlands Bach Society. The Opening Chorus that we are singing starts at the 4:00 mark.  The first movement, the Sinfonia, will be played along with it.  The two movements together make a stunning combo, I do say. The whole work is stunning, a real stroke of inspiration, as only we have come to expect from Bach's work.

The second link is from CyberBass, a wonderful online resource for choral music. From this page, you can listen to digital tracks of each of the voice parts, or all four together and balanced.  It is a really nice reference to have to continue to work on this rather intricate masterpiece.  I hope you find it helpful!
