Suscepit Israel

I've had this on my mind today. I could wish for a slower tempo here but the voices just can't be beat.

It's from Bach's Magnificat, of course, and the English for this luminous movement is "He has come to the help of his servant Israel, for he has remembered his promise of mercy...".


  1. try:


    Programa: J.S.Bach. Magnificat BWV 243 "Suscepit Israel", Soprano: Inma Férez. Soprano: Agnieszka Grzywacz. Mezzosoprano: Marta Infante. Director: Óscar Gershenshohn.


  2. Hello, Depruit.

    Thank you so very much for suggesting this performance here. It is lovely and a much better (to my mind) tempo than the one I posted.
