Iveta's Chocolate Box #03

Tastes of ... caramel! Johann Sebastian Bach’s choral »Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring«.

Six different chocolates, six favourite pieces: For her »chocolate box«, titular organist Iveta Apkalna has chosen short organ works, each of which she associates with a particular flavour. The result is a collection of musical titbits to warm the mind and the soul.
