you'll think you died and went to heaven. Oh my. Someone showed this website to me yesterday. These are the most beautifully recorded Bach performances I've never seen and heard. Everything is performed with Baroque instruments in Baroque style.

I shared the site with the conductor of our ensemble.  He "loves" it !

Most beautiful; both the music and the performance. 
Our group is currently working on the Magnificat for this Xmas at a community church here in San Diego. Everyone in the group will be delighted to study and learn from this!
Many thanks!

Thanks for posting this; it found a place in my favs.
I enjoyed this performance particularly http://allofbach.com/en/bwv/bwv-1012/
because it was played on a cello de spalla.
That is one favorite of luthier Dmitry Badiarov, who has his business somewhere in The Hague. If I had the money for a violin made by him...

Beth,  what a great find for those of us who love Bach... 

Thanks :)

I suspect I have the complete Bach's oevre in my computer. But not with those magnificent images and with époque instruments. So this site, 'all of Bach' is a wonderful finding.

Thank you, Beth.

Fabiano, "Ebarme Dich" was the first thing I search for!

For those of you who don't know this. Go to Allofbach.com and you'll see St. Matthews Passion on the home page. Click on that. Then there's a drop down menu at the top of the player. #39 is Ebarme Dich, one of the most beautiful arias you'll ever hear.

Yes, beth!
I've heard the 'erbarme mich' and the 'gebt mir meinen jesum wieder', songs more familiar to me, and I'm astounded.

Thanks, Beth!  Yes, it's wonderful. 
Since I can't overload my pianist with more and more pieces, I finally have gone back to the 2 Partitas I had to play when was young (though very badly, and still play badly), but they are soo beautiful and will keep me occupied to the end of my life...

As to Bach Solo Partitas and Sonatas, at the moment there is a special on https://iclassical-foundation.com.  It's a serious of shortish videos, that form a course, starting with history, performance issues etc, by Miriam Fried.  I listened to Miriam Fried's Bach Sonatas for violin and piano in the past, and she is one of my favourite interpreters. 

At the moment the cost is 19.- US dollars.  Well worth, in my opinion.
