Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

Note: Every movement begins with the line "Gelobet sei der Herr, Mein Gott."

  1. Chorus [Versus 1]. A heavy-duty festive orchestration greets the listener first, with the overlapping entrances from trumpet presaging the same from the chorus. O Gott, du frommer Gott is sung line by line in the soprano over an imitative texture.
  2. Aria Versus 2 (Bass). A continuo aria, "[giving] the voice the opportunity for the most highly expressive melody"1.
  3. Aria Versus 3 (Soprano). Flute and violin play a sort of trio sonata which becomes a quartet with the soprano. Despite the serious nature of this movement, the arcing fast figures continually make the movement more lively, along with a few melismas in the voice.
  4. Aria Versus 4 (Alto). The oboe d'amore plays a pastoral theme in 6/8 over a relaxed bass; the alto enters with the same theme. This aria is a perfect example of Bach's arias exhibiting "song-like—almost dance-like—joyfulness"1.
  5. Chorale Versus 5. A "finale of exceptional splendour"1. The chorale is sung plainly with a highly decorative instrumental backdrop.
