Antonio Caldara’s ‘Maddalena ai piedi di Cristo’ is overwhelmingly beautiful, really sublime and divine music and the soprano Hana Blazikova is truly a revelation, as you will find out by playing the three clips below.
I’m compleeetly touched by this incredibly beautiful Bach-piece, sung so wonderfully by counter-tenor Paul Esswood. As in many of his other works Johann Sebastian Bach manages here to let us experience perfection in an imperfect world. I know some Cantatas of Bach, but not a great number. When or how will I ever find time to listen to all of his Cantatas? There’s still so much to explore… 🙂
