Knock, knock ... it is the Lord!

Here is a clip which shows in beautiful sequence:

-the Recitative (quoting Apocalypse 3. v. 20), "Behold I stand at the door and knock" underlayed with wonderful pizzicato, where all the violins knock, knock, knock ...
- the joyous and serene soprano aria telling the soul to "open up" ...
- the final Amen, assenting to Jesus' coming in our hearts, seen as the crowning of our lives

all from Bach's "Nun komm der Heiden Heiland" (Now come Saviour of the Gentiles).
