Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: "Es ist das Heil uns kommen her" - a gapped chorale setting of the tune. The alto, tenor, and bass voices sing free counterpoint, while the sopranos sing the chorale unadorned in long notes.
  2. Recitative: "Gott gab uns ein Gesetz" ("Got gave us a law") - for basso and continuo.
  3. Aria: "Wir waren schon zu tief gesunken" ("We were already too deeply sunk") - a tenor aria with solo violin and continuo .
  4. Recitative: "Doch mußte das Gesetz erfüllet werden" ("Yet the law must be fulfilled") - for bass voice and continuo.
  5. Duet: "Herr, du siehst statt guter Werke" ("Lord, you see, instead of good works") - for soprano, alto, flute, oboe d'amore and continuo.
  6. Recitative: "Wenn wir die Sünd aus dem Gesetz erkennen" ("When we recognize our sin against the law") - for bass voice and continuo.
  7. Chorale: "Ob sichs anließ, als wollt er nicht" ("Although it appears He does not will it") - the last verse of the chorale, sung and played by the whole ensemble.
