This performance of Bach's classic religious composition takes place in the ruins of the Fontenay Abbey in Burgundy, France, where a 12-year-old girl (Ana Torrent) is encountering the music of Bach for the first time. The choral music is performed by the Gaechinger Kantorei Stuttgart and the Bach-Kollegium Stuttgart, and the orchestra and choirs are directed by Helmut Rilling.
