Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Choral: Mache dich, mein Geist, bereit. Although following the typical soprano cantus firmus, choral imitation, instrumental lines formula of Bach's chorale cantatas, this movement is particularly memorable for the rich texture of unison upper strings against the warm tones of oboe d'amore, flute, and continuo. The addition of horn to the sopranos only adds to the luxuriant feel.
  2. Aria (Alto): Ach, schläfrige Seele, wie? With partly independent oboe d'amore obbligato, this "melancholy siciliano"1, adagio, combines poignant suspensions with motivic relations to both 1st and 5th movements.
  3. Recitativo (Bass): Gott, so vor deine Seele wacht. Secco recitative.
  4. Aria (Soprano): Bete aber auch dabei. One of the rare violoncello piccolo movements in Bach's cantatas, the two obbligato instruments play off each other nicely, while the soprano sings the same material, sometimes including the chorale sometimes.
  5. Recitativo (Tenor): Er sehnet sich nach unserm Schreien. Secco recitative-arioso.
  6. Choral: Drum so laßt uns immerdar. A plain chorale setting
