For his "Komm, Jesu, komm," Bach used a double choir to create a sound of contrasting rhythms, techniques, meters, and textures. The Berwick Chorus sings the liturgical motet, pairing it with "one of the finest 20th century choral works" (Chicago Classical Review), Mass for Unaccompanied Double Chorus, from Swiss composer Frank Martin.
