Passion and desire go hand in hand, especially as a motivation. Linstead & Brewis refer to Merriam-Webster to say that passion is an "intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction".

In philosophy and religion the passions are the instinctive, emotional, primitive drives in a human being which a human being must restrain, channel, develop and sublimate in order to be possessed of wisdom.

The subject of the passions has long been a consideration in Western philosophy.

The double chorus one is easily identified as the St Matthew Passion. The St John Passion is the only extant other one that is certainly composed by Bach.
