21st-Century Bach

Organist John Scott Whiteley plays Bach's Herzlich tut mich verlangen (BWV 727) at St Pancratius Church in Hamburg-Neuenfelde, Germany. This brief organ meditation on the Passion chorale is a miniature of absolute purity and simplicity. The programme employs a variety of unusual filming techniques to give a dramatic interpretation of the music, including using miniature cameras on the inside of the organ to show the mechanical works.
