Bach: St. Matthew Passion, Karl Richter, 1959

On Radio Bach, I just heard a stirring rendition of the opening Chorus & Chorale to Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. It’s part of a legendary 1959 performance conducted by Karl Richter and features M√ľnchener Bach-Chor (The Munich Bach Choir).

You can hear the whole thing on YouTube below. (The opening Chorus & Chorale starts the piece and ends at the 9:48 marker.)
