Cantata for Easter Monday

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: "Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden" - a freely polyphonic movement in ternary form for the entire ensemble. The middle section is fugal in texture.
  2. Aria: "Hochgelobter Gottessohn" ("Highly-praised Son of God") - for alto, oboe da caccia and continuo.
  3. Chorale: "Ach bleib bei uns, Herr Jesu Christ" ("Ah, stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ") - a setting of Hermann's chorale for solo soprano, piccolo cello and continuo.
  4. Recitative: "Es hat die Dunkelheit an vielen Orten" ("The darkness has [taken over] in many places") - for bass and continuo.
  5. Aria: "Jesu, laß uns auf dich sehen" ("Jesus, let us look upon you") - for tenor, strings and continuo.
  6. Chorale: "Beweis dein Macht, Herr Jesu Christ" ("Reveal your strength, Lord Jesus Christ") - the last verse of the chorale, sung and played by the whole ensemble.
