This is, indeed, an awesome video, especially the segment on "O Sacred Head." Brings it all together in the Sitz im Leben of Gerhard's composition of that classic . . .

I agree - absolutely stunning.

Thanks for posting this. O Sacred Head, Now Wounded – is an extraordinarily stunning passion hymn. I love jazz, so hearing Sara Kaiser near the end of the video is a bonus blessing.
