Misc. Notes:

This cantata shows the problem between chorton and kammerton. The strings and the organ was playing in chorton = ca 466 Hz (F minor) and the oboe (and probably the bassoon) in kammerton= 415Hz (G minor). I have made parts in both keys for you to choose.

Misc. Comments

For the Third Sunday after Easter (Jubilate)

Commentary on the movements

  1. Sinfonia – For oboe, two violins, two violas and basso continuo with a bassoon. As of many of Bach's early cantatas, the work opens with a brief instrumental passage, marked adagio assai, which includes an expressive and plaintive solo oboe. (F minor)
  2. Chorus "Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen" ("Weeping, lamenting, worrying, fearing") – For soprano, alto, tenor, bass, two violins, two violas and basso continuo with a bassoon. The opening chorus is built upon a basso ostinato, in an old-style 3/2 passacaglia. The words are each pronounced by another vocal part, overlapping the next one. The middle section takes a somewhat festive mood and modulates to the key of E major (F minor). Model for "Crucifixus" movement of BWV 232.
  3. Recitative "Wir müssen durch viel Trübsal" ("We must through much tribulation") – For alto, two violins, two violas, and basso continuo with a basoon, this is the only recitative in the cantata, what confirms this cantata's old style. (c minor)
  4. Aria "Kreuz und Kronen sind verbunden" ("Cross and crown are bound together") for alto, oboe and basso continuo. (C minor)
  5. Aria "Ich folge Christo nach" ("I follow after Christ") – For bass, two violins and basso continuo. (E major)
  6. Aria "Sei getreu, alle Pein" ("Be faithful, all suffering") – For tenor, trumpet and basso continuo. Simultaneously with the tenor line, the trumpet plays the chorale tune Jesu, meine Freude, resembling a Central German 17th century compositional technique. (G minor)
  7. Chorale "Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan" ("What God does, that is well-done") (B major)
