Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Sinfonia. Thought to date from Der Himmel dacht auf Anhalts Ruhm und Glück, BWV 66a. The double reeds function as a smaller group against the string backdrop. D major
  2. Recitativo (Tenor): Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats. Secco recitative. B minor
  3. Aria (Alto): Wo zwei und drei versammlet sind. "The third movement unfolds a supraterrestrial calm."1. Perhaps also from BWV 66a. G major
  4. Choral Duetto: Verzage nicht, o Häuflein klein. Basically an "aria duetto." B minor
  5. Recitativo (Bass): Man kann hiervon ein schön Exempel sehen. Secco recitative. G major-A minor
  6. Aria (Bass): Jesus ist ein Schild der Seinen. For divided first violins (!) and continuo in addition to the solo voice. The continuo here plays an important role. A major
  7. Choral: Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich. Plain chorale setting. F minor
