No wonder Bruhns was a model for the young Bach. Every nuance of text is painted musically in short-breathed sectional pieces. A funeral psalm-setting, more spaciously structured though harmonically unadventurous, is breathtakingly beautiful. Fresh solo voices and strings (initially a touch close), are captivating.
