Misc. Comments

For the Sunday after New Year.

Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorale+Aria (Soprano, Bass)]1: Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid. A slow opening movement in French style. The soprano delivers the chorale melody unadorned, while the bass sings an expressive counterpoint.
  2. Recitativo (Bass): Verfolgt dich gleich die arge Welt. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Soprano): Ich bin vergnügt in meinem Leiden. Again, the soprano sings a slower, expressive part, where the violin here delivers the concertante part.
  4. Recitativo (Soprano): Kann es die Welt nicht lassen. Secco recitative.
  5. [Chorale+Aria (Soprano, Bass)]1: Ich hab für mir ein schwere Reis. An “overtly concerto-like chorale arrangement.” A joyous movement, to match the optimistic character of the text. However, the writing does betray many similarities to the first movement.

Version History

  1. 1727, lost original version
  2. 1733/4, revised version; revisions include new oboe parts, and a substituted new third movement. Only a continuo part survives of the original third movement.
