This video captures a performance of one of Bach's greatest masterpieces, presented in the beautiful surroundings and stunning aucustics of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. I was in Paris for a portion of the filming in March 2006 and can confirm that this is a world class production. I highly recomend it!
