Aus Liebe...from St. Matthew Passion of JSBach
Probably one of the most exposed, vulnerable, and heartrendering arias in the repertoire canon - "Aus liebe will mein Heiland sterben":
The aforementioned aria gets my tear ducts working in overdrive. In this vid the aria is preceded by a short recitative, so hang in there gentle MIMFers.
*If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-
*Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."
*Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

christians love him so much.
