Here's a lovely aria by Johann Sebastian Bach to brighten your day. Today's Beautiful Music is a concert performance of Bach's aria ET EXULTAVIT SPIRITUS MEUS (And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.) from his Magnificat BWV243, composed between 1732-35. The singer is Arwen Myers, with harpsichordist and conductor Alexander Weimann leading Pacific Baroque Orchestra.
