URTEXT EDITION 
This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Halt im Gedächtnis Jesum Christ. A densely woven, structurally symmetrical movement full of word-painting and imagery.
  2. Aria (Tenor): Mein Jesus ist erstanden. The theme of this movement is full of sharply articulated repeated notes, which provide momentum.
  3. Recitativo (Alto): Mein Jesu, heißest du des Todes Gift. Secco recitative.
  4. Choral: Erschienen ist der herrlich Tag. A plain chorale setting.
  5. Recitativo (Alto): Doch scheinet fast. Secco recitative.
  6. Aria[/Chorus] (Bass): Friede sei mit euch! A chorus with the same music for each of the three strophes; each is prefixed by the bass solemnly intoning "Peace be with you!"
  7. Choral: Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ. A plain choral setting.
