From St. Matthew Passion by J. S. Bach.
American Tune by Paul Simon
Bach's Passion Chorale is beautiful, transcendent.
Mr. Simon is an American treasure. How cool that his lyrics match up so well with "an air" from Bach.
To quote Burton Cummings, one of Mr.Simon's peers, in a song...
"I.... Will play a rhapsody
Cleverly disguise it, so it's not been heard before..."
