One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and canons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
Mache dich, mein Herze, rein (Make thee clean, my heart, from sin is a Tenor aria from Part II of Bach's Matthew Passion.
This version is a for tenor with a piano reduction of the orchestral part.
The Matthew Passion is considered by some to be Bach's greatest work.
