In this church on October 9, 1989, a “Protest of Silence” led to the reunification of Germany and demolition of the Berlin Wall beginning exactly one month later. The DVD includes a documentary on the event. The concert recorded here was given 10 years later, to the day, for benefit of this church, where Bach was cantor simultaneously with his position at St. Thomas Church.
