Definitely in German! I'm loving it. Ah, O Mensch... definitely one of the best. So many great arias/chorales. It's hard to pick one as a favorite! Something about "Gebt mir meinen Jesum wieder" being an embodiment of so much I love about Bach... and the joy of "Mache dich mein Herze rein"... I'm, of course, partial to all the oboe (d'amore, eh too) arias too.
This inspired me to listen to the Passion during my morning run. Wishing I played the oboe!
