On April 19th this year Vidas and I were supposed to perform arias and choruses from Bach's Easter Oratorio at Vilnius University St John's church. Naturally, this recital got cancelled because of the quarantine. However, we kept practicing our program, recording those pieces one by one and uploading them to YouTube. So today, not even 2 months after the original recital's date we have completed this task. During this time our Hauptwerk setup grew from 3 to 4 manuals - from more vertical keyboard stand to more horizontal table setup. I hope you will enjoy the last chorus. It's joyful and powerful.
We have played this piece using Velesovo sample set by Sonus Paradisi of Hauptwerk VPO.
