Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Dazu ist erschienen. A festive opening chorus in imitation.
  2. Recitativo (Tenor): Das Wort ward Fleisch und wohnet in der Welt. Secco recitative.
  3. Choral: Die Sünd macht Leid. The first of three (plain) chorales in this cantata.
  4. Aria (Bass): Höllische Schlange. "A movement of full-blooded drama"1.
  5. Recitativo (Alto): Die Schlange. Recitative with string accompaniment.
  6. Choral: Schüttle deinen Kopf und sprich. The second chorale.
  7. Aria (Tenor): Christenkinder, freuet euch! Many elaborate melismas give this movement too a joyous character.
