Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Aria: Ich armer Mensch, ich Sündenknecht. A richly textured movement featuring the winds. The tenor is noticeably higher than normal.
  2. Recitativo: Ich habe wider Gott gehandelt. Secco Recitatitve.
  3. Aria: Erbarme dich! Aria with obbligato flute; an expressive, technically challenging part for the instrument. This aria is notable for its frequent N6 chords.
  4. Recitativo: Erbarme dich! Recitative with string accompaniment.
  5. Choral: Bin ich gleich von dir gewichen. A plain chorale setting.
