Misc. Comments

For the 14th Sunday after Trinity.

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Jesu, der du meine Seele. An expressively chromatic passacaglia with many episodes of free counterpoint. The soprano, above this, sings the chorale tune unadorned.
  2. Aria (Soprano, Alto): Wir eilen mit schwachen, doch emsigen Schritten. A deliciously contrasting and vivacious duet.
  3. Recitativo (Tenor): Ach! ich bin ein Kind der Sünden. Secco recitative.
  4. Aria (Tenor): Das Blut, so meine Schuld durchstreicht. An aria with obbligato flute at its most characteristic. This movement is distinctive thanks to its rising scale patterns and frequent leaps.
  5. Recitativo (Bass): Die Wunden, Nägel, Kron und Grab. Recitative with string accompaniments.
  6. Aria (Bass): Nur du wirst mein Gewissen stillen. A dance-like movement characterized by a flowing oboe line interupted by initial chords alla francese.
  7. Chorale: Herr, ich glaube, hilf mir Schwachen. A plain chorale setting.
