Bach Feast III CATS recording clip

Bloomington’s Community Access Television Services recorded our Bach Feast III concert of Apr. 15, 2018. Here is a small excerpt from that concert:

Still from CATS

This is the final movement from the Cantata “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben”, BWV 147.

The text is as follows:

Jesus bleibet meine Freude,
Meines Herzens Trost und Saft.
Jesus wehret allem Leide,

Er ist meines Lebens Kraft,
Meiner Augen Lust und Sonne,
Meiner Seele Schatz und Wonne;
Darum lass ich Jesum nicht

Aus dem Herzen und Gesicht.

Jesus remains my joy,
my heart’s comfort and sap.
Jesus defends me against all
he is my life’s strength,
my eyes’ delight and sunshine,
my soul’s treasure and joy;
therefore, I shall not let Jesus
from my heart and my sight.
