We had so much fun taping cellist Yo-Yo Ma and friends jam in a prop warehouse that we couldn’t stop. Watch the Silk Road Project percussion section get into a deep groove inspired by a traditional rhythm from Upper Egypt.

Translation:

Evangelist
Afterwards Joseph from Arimathia, who was one of Jesus’ disciples (though secretly out of fear of the Jews), asked Pilate whether he might take away Jesus’ body. And Pilate permitted it. Therefore he came and took the body of Jesus away. But Nicodemus also came, who previously had come to Jesus in the night, and brought myrrh and aloe with him in hundred-weights. Then they took the body of Jesus and wrapped it in linen cloths with spices, as is the Jewish custom of burial. However, there was a garden near the place where He was crucified, and in this garden a new grave, in which no one had ever been laid. In that same grave they laid Jesus, according to the Sabbath wishes of the Jews, since the grave was nearby.

O help, Christ, Son of God,

St John Passion BWV 245 - 36. Evangelist: Die Jüden aber, dieweil es der Rüsttag war

John Eliot Gardiner / Monteverdi Choir / English Baroque Soloists
Recorded live at Royal Albert Hall, London, Aug 24, 2008

image: part of Scenes From the Passion of Christ by Hans Memling

Translation:

Evangelist
The Jews however, since it was the Sabbath day, so that the corpses would not remain on their crosses over the Sabbath (for this particular Sabbath day was very great), asked Pilate for their bones to be broken and that they be taken away. So the soldiers came and broke the bones of the first and the other one, who had been crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus, and they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His bones; instead one of the soldiers opened His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. And he that saw this, bore witness to it, and his testimony is true, and this same knows that he speaks the truth so that you believe. For all this has happened in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled: “You shall break none of His bones.” And in addition another Scripture says: “They will behold what they have pierced.”
