Misc. Comments

This cantata is a sacred parody of BWV 30a, and discussion of the music can be found there. The differences are listed here, however (Numbers refer to BWV 30a unless otherwise stated):

  • As usual, recitatives (Nos. 2, 4, 7, 9, 11 in BWV 30) are newly written.
  • A chorale is placed between Nos. 5 and 6.
  • In No.7, the oboe obbligato is replaced with an oboe d'amore.
  • No. 11 is omitted.
