No with choir and orchestra. HIP though of course

Papy Oli:
bumpity bump.

For a maiden exploration of this lengthy work, what would be the key/"famous" Choruses / Arias / Recitatives worth focusing on when sampling the various recordings of the SMP please ?

Thank you.

Mache dich, mein Herze, rein

The final aria for bass voice. Still one of the most beautiful movements in all of music, for me.

You could try the beginning and the end - the opening chorus of Part I and the closing scene of Part II, No 64 onwards, beginning with the recitative 'Am Abend da es kuhle war'. They contain some of my favourite bits.
