J.S.Bach - Matthäus-Passion - Wir setzen uns mit Tränen nieder

Passio Domini Nostri J.C. Secundum Evangelistam Matthaeum translates to "The Passion of our Lord J[esus] C[hrist] according to the Evangelist Matthew."

I have wanted to know the title/composer of this music for over two decades.  Thanks to Classic FM, I have found it.  It was on my favourite episode of 'Inspector Morse' - Who Killed Harry Field? The music just reminds me of the wonderful Freddie Jones, who played the grieving Harry Field Snr and who sometimes reminds me unbearably of my father.

Beautiful :-)
