Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Was willst du dich betrüben. A standard chorale cantata opening chorus—the sopranos sing the melody plain with a lively fugal texture below.
  2. Recitativo (Bass): Denn Gott verlässet keinen. Recitative (the only one!) with 2 oboes d'amore.
  3. Aria (Bass): Auf ihn magst du es wagen. An aria in Bar form with string accompaniment.
  4. Aria (Tenor): Wenn auch gleich aus der Höllen. A continuo aria in a lively 3/4.
  5. Aria (Soprano): Es richt's zu seinen Ehren. Two obbligato oboes d'amore provide a beautiful accompaniment to this aria.
  6. Aria (Tenor): Darum ich mich ihm ergebe. The tenor declaims the chorale plain.
  7. Choral: Herr, gib, daß ich dein Ehre. The chorus sings the chorale plain while the orchestral plays "florid siciliano rhythm" against it1.
