It is perhaps the most accomplished masterpiece of Baroque sacred music, an intoxicating work of choral beauty and rich with dazzling arias.
Published only in 1833, the complete work was certainly not performed during Bach's lifetime, but in the 19th century it became a symbol of compositional mastery, and with the Baroque revival an essential work of the German Baroque and of universal music, placed on the same level as his St Matthew Passion.
