Bach: Matthäus-Passion, Aria “Mache dich, mein Herze, rein” (by FiDiTanzer528)
This week’s Classical Music Monday post is a little late, but I’m fighting some sort of sickness, so I stayed in bed most of the day. Today, I bring you the Aria “Mache dich, mein Herze, rein” along with its accompanying recitative, sung by the wonderful Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
This post is a good one for today for 2 reasons - firstly, I’m learning it myself at the moment and it’s a great example for me; and secondly, it’s Holy Week right now. The text of this aria is perfect as we head toward Good Friday.
