Brilliant. Tenor Mark Padmore sings J. S. Bach
J. S. Bach, Cantata No 29 III . Aria "Halleluja, Stärk und Macht" (Herreweghe & Collegium Vocale), and maybe this is a little too sophisticated for an average listener, but the more you listen, the more you will like and understand it. "Halleluja, Stärk und Macht" i think means "Hallelujah, Strength and Might" in German... but i am not sure about precise translation... The singer and musicians are excellent. BTW, my dad was a superb classical violinist also.
On the record it says: "Wir danken dir, Gott"
Which means: "We thank You, God"
The word "Alleluia" or "Hallelujah" (from Hebrew הללו יה), which literally means "Praise ye Yah", a short form of "Praise Yahweh" and often rendered as "praise the Lord". The form "Alleluia" is also used to refer to a liturgical chant in which that word is combined with verses of Scripture, usually from the Psalms. (Wikipedia)
Phillippe Herreweghe, i think is the conductor, or the main guy, and on the record that is probably his photo. Black and white photo is that of Mark Padmore, who is a famous British tenor.
