I didn't know what to write about 9-11 and the disasters that were made to follow it. The original chorale was written by Philipp Nicholai during a plague that hit his town, killing many people he knew, including a student.
The central choral verse, Zion hört die Wächter singen, is better known in its organ transcription as a chorale prelude.
This first version of it with a tenor soloist in the manner championed by Joshua Rifkin is quite convincing. The more I hear of Bach's vocal music with one voice per part the more I like it.
