Commentary on the movements

  1. Aria (Tenor): Es reißet euch ein schrecklich Ende. An "impassioned tenor aria, rich in coloraturas, in which the lively figuration and rapid scale passages of the first violin...illustrate the threat of punishment for sinners."1
  2. Recitativo (Alto): Des Höchsten Güte wird von Tag zu Tag neu. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Bass): So löschet im Eifer der rächende Richter. The obbligato instrument is unmarked, but probably a brass instrument. Whatever it is, it is highly virtuosic.
  4. Recitativo (Tenor): Doch Gottes Aufe sieht auf uns als Auserwählte. Secco recitative.
  5. Choral: Leit uns mit deiner rechten Hand. A plain chorale setting (=Vater unser in Himmelreich).
