Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Angenehmes Wiederau. A dance-like movement with chorus giving the ritornello to the strings instead of the other way around. This happens again, giving an AABB form. D major
  2. Recitativo (Schicksal, SAT): So ziehen wir. Secco recitative, but the voices sing together as a quartet at "Dein Name soll." This happens again in No.12. B minor-G Major
  3. Aria (Schicksal): Willkommen im Heil, willkommen in Freuden. An aria utilizing passepied rhythms. G major
  4. Recitativo (Glück): Da heute dir, gepriesner Hennicke. Secco recitative. A major
  5. Aria (Glück): Was die Seele kann ergötzen. Uses syncopated rhythms popular at this point in time. The obbligato is a flute. Note the special effects, such as pizzicato and con sordino. A major
  6. Recitativo (Schicksal): Und wie ich jederzeit bedacht. Secco recitative. F minor-D major
  7. Aria (Schicksal): Ich will dich halten. This movement is notable for its Lombard rhythms ("scotch snap"). B minor
  8. Recitativo (Zeit): Und obwohl sonst der Unbestand. Secco recitative. F minor-G Major
  9. Aria (Zeit): Eilt, ihr Stunden, wie ihr wollt. A gigue-like movement in 9/8. The unison violins contrast the solo violin of No.8. E minor
  10. Recitativo (Elster): So recht! ihr seid mir werte Gäste. Secco Recitative. G major-F minor
  11. Aria (Elster): So, wie ich die Tropfen zolle. Another dance-like aria in 3/4 for tenor and continuo. The tenor moves freely and agilely above a relatively stable bass. B minor
  12. Recitativo (Elster, SAB): Drum, angenehmes Wiederau. Secco Recitative. See No.2. G major-D major
  13. Aria [sic]: Angenehmes Wiederau. A reprise of the opening movement. D major
