Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: "Wo soll ich fliehen hin" - 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. (G Minor)
  2. Recitative: "Der Sünden Wust hat mich nicht nur befleckt" ("This heap of sins has not merely left a stain") - for Bass and continuo. (G Minor)
  3. Aria: "Ergieße dich reichlich" ("Pour yourself richly") - a tenor aria with solo viola and continuo (E Major).
  4. Recitative: "Mein treuer Heiland tröstet mich" ("My loving Savior comforts me") - for alto, oboe and continuo (G minor to C minor)
  5. Aria: "Verstumme, Höllenheer" ("Be silent, host of Hell") - for bass, tromba, strings and continuo (B Major).
  6. Recitative: "Ich bin ja nur das kleinste Teil der Welt" ("I am, indeed, only the smallest part of the world") - for soprano and continuo. (G Minor)
  7. Chorale: "Führ auch mein Herz und Sinn" ("Guide also my heart and mind") - the last verse of the chorale, sung and played by the whole ensemble. (G Minor)
