Misc. Comments

For the Second day of Christmas (St. Stephen’s Day).

Commentary on the movements

  1. Aria (Bass): Selig ist der Mann. One of the more richly scored movements, with oboes doubling the strings. The aria is in ‘’Bar’’ form (AAB). The bass part is notable for its use as a sustained expressive voice, instead of carrying the thematic material, at least at first.
  2. Recitativo (Soprano): Ach! dieser süße Trost. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Soprano): Ich wünschte mir den Tod, den Tod. The highly chromatic thematic material gives expressive force to this aria.
  4. Recitativo (Soprano, Bass): Secco recitative. Ich reiche dir die Hand.
  5. Aria (Bass): Ja, ja, ich kann die Feinde schlagen. The longest movement by far, this aria is a radiant expression of joy.
  6. Recitativo (Soprano, Bass): In meiner Schoß liegt Ruh und Leben. Secco recitative.
  7. Aria (Soprano): Ich ende / Behende / Mein irdisches Leben. “Music of aching, passionate bliss”1. The opening theme is notable for its extensive range of two octaves and a third.
  8. Choral: Richte dich, Liebste, nach meinem Gefallen. A plain chorale setting, with voices reinforced by all the instruments, including a return of the doubling oboes.
