Adventures in Liturgy: Bach aria with Elyse, Sam & Ed


Performed on Mother’s Day, 2010 by Elyse Marchant, soprano; Sam Pullen, violin; and Ed Murray, organ.  A note from Sam:  On Mother’s Day 2010, I performed this Bach aria in memory of my mother, Leanna Bell. She and I performed this piece together over 15 years ago, so it was a great honor to play it again. The piece is Auch mit gedampften, schwachen Stimmen, BWV 36, by Johann Sebastian Bach. It was performed at Immanuel Presbyterian Church with Elyse Marchant singing soprano, Sam Pullen on violin, and Edward Murray on the Organ. Enjoy!!
