|Kauffmann||Herr Jesu Christ, du höchstes Gut from “Harmonische Seelenlust”|
|JS Bach||Herr Jesu Christ, du höchstes Gut BWV 113|
|Telemann||Dolce from Sonata à 4|
The antidote for the burdened and sorrowful soul in BWV 113 is God’s ‘healing Word’ which causes the heart to laugh again! This laughter can be heard in the Chorale and Recitative, with a burst of playful semiquavers in the continuo cello.
Continuing on the theme of laughter, Neuroscientist Dr Sophie Scott discusses the science of laughter and why we instinctively try to make each other laugh to get through difficult times.
