Is that on the Top Ten Most Overused Puns List?

Ok, a side-by-side comparison of the final choral sections of St. Matthew's Passion suggests that the Weiner Philharmoniker might not be playing the piece the way I expected. It takes the voices 15 seconds longer to start in their version than in the Essentially Bach version. That's a huge discrepancy of speeds. They are not rockin the Bach.

Now I need to decide if I should get a non-skip, cough-free, Bach Rockin' Beats version or not.

I think I'll wait and listen to some of the other hours of music I have waiting for me. Perhaps Don Giovanni. That Mozart knew how to stir the cockles!
