Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Ouverture: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland. An "ingenious combination of chorale arrangement and French Overture"1.
  2. Recitativo (Tenor): Der Heiland ist gekommen. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Tenor): Komm, Jesu, komm zu deiner Kirche. The upper strings (including violas) function as obbligato together; this forms a tight trio texture with the tenor and continuo.
  4. Recitativo (Bass): Siehe, ich stehe vor der Tur. The "true high point of the work"1. The text is illustrated here in brilliant detail.
  5. Aria (Soprano): Offne dich, mein ganzes Herze. A continuo aria with many coloratura leaps and runs.
  6. Chorale: Amen, Amen. A highly ornamented setting.
