This weeks Aria of the Week is J.S. Bach's "Widerstehe doch der Sünde" from the cantata of the same name. In fact, contralto Marga Höffgen sings the whole cantata in this video. She has a wonderfully rich, dark and powerful contralto voice. There are numerous F3's scattered throughout the aria, so lots of wonderful "true contralto" notes for you all to enjoy!
