Misc. Comments

For the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany.

Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorale+Recitative]: Herr, wie du willt, so schick’s mit mir. The motive from which the movement is derived is itself from the chorale tune "Wo Gott der Herr nicht bein uns hält." This movement is also by far the longest.
  2. Aria (Tenor): Ach senke doch den Geist der Freuden. The only major-key movement in the cantata, and thus the only "cheerfully relaxed movement."1
  3. Recitativo (Bass): Ach, unser Wille bleibt verkehrt. Secco recitative. Attacca
  4. Aria (Bass): Herr, so du willt. Also motivically based. Bach here writes a strophic setting of the brief text.
  5. Choral: Das ist des Vaters Wille. A plain chorale setting.
