Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Wer mich liebet, der wird mein Wort halten. See Cantata 59/i. This adds an extra trumpet and the oboe chorus.
  2. Aria (Soprano): Konn, komm, mein Herze steht dir offen. See Cantata 59/iv. Bach replaces violin with oboe da caccia, and bass with soprano.
  3. Recitativo (Alto): Die Wohnung ist bereit. Secco recitative.
  4. Aria (Bass): Ich gehe hin und komme wieder zu euch. A continuo aria; basso quasi ostinato.
  5. Aria (Tenor): Kommt, eilet, stimmet Sait und Lieder. The first violin has a virtuosic concertante part here.
  6. Recitativo (Bass): Es ist nichts Verdammliches an denen. Recitative with oboes.
  7. Aria (Alto): Nichts kann mich erretten. A "lively dance-like piece in which the...choirs engage in antiphonal exchanges"1.
  8. Chorale: Kein Menschenkind hier auf der Erd. A plain chorale setting.
