Bach, the Universe and Everything is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's science and music series for questioning and inquisitive minds. 

THE MUSIC

BWV 144 Nimm, was dein ist, und gehe hin (Take what is yours and go away.)

Cantata BWV 144 tells of the labourers from St Matthew’s Gospel who feel that they have been underpaid. It begins with a merciless fugue: don’t complain and go away.
