Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorale]: Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ. A festive opening chorus, although rather short
  2. Recitativo (Soprano): Der Glanz der höchsten Herrlichkeit. Secco recitative with bits of chorale interspersed
  3. Aria (Tenor): Gott, dem der Erden Kreis zu klein. Three baroque oboes (tuning!) are the only other instruments aside from continuo here
  4. Recitativo (Bass): O Christenheit! Recitative with string accompaniment
  5. Aria (Soprano, Alto): Die Armut, so Gott auf sich nimmt. The marked contrasts of the text are here illustarted
  6. Choral: Das hat er alles uns getan. A plain chorale setting with independent horn parts
