Bach Herr Jesu Christ, wahr' Mensch und Gott (Lord Jesus Christ, true man and God) BWV 127

Professor Buzz Baum Professor of Cell Biology, University College London

Cell Your Soul

The science

“My core interest has been in trying to think like a cell,” says UCL’s Buzz Baum, who works at the intersection of biology and physics, trying to understand how cells evolve. He’s published a radical new theory as to how eukaryotic cells – which make up complex life forms such as ourselves – came to be.

The music

Written for the last Sunday before lent, this cantata repurposes a famous tune from Bach’s St Matthew Passion and features lovely writing for an oboe and recorders. Thematically, it’s a serious one, mostly about death and how it’s easier to face it with Jesus at your side.
