Misc. Comments

For the 11th Sunday after Trinity.

Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorale]: Herr Jesu Christ, du höchstes Gut. The sustained appogiaturas of this movement give it a plaintive character, especially combined with the sounds of oboe d'amore.
  2. [Chorale] (Alto): Erbarm dich mein in solcher Last. The alto sings the chorale line unadorned while all of the violins play an independent line in scalar motion.
  3. Aria (Bass): Fürwahr, wenn mir das kömmet ein. The running trills of this movement give it a "running" character, as does the flowing 12/8 meter.
  4. Recitativo (Bass): Jedoch dein heilsam Wort. The chorale is sung plain by the bass, interspersed with recitative.
  5. Aria (Tenor): Jesus nimmt die Sünder an. A gentle aria for flute and tenor. The meter here is never quite stable, shifting between 4/4 and 3/2.
  6. Recitativo (Tenor): Der Heiland nimmt die Sünder an. Recitative with string accompaniment.
  7. Aria (Soprano, Alto): AchHerr, mein Gott, vergib mirs doch. A duet with only continuo accompaniment. The urgent character of this duet is provided by the continuous semiquavers in the voices and their canonic imitation.
  8. Choral: Stärk mich mit deinem Freudengeist. A plain chorale setting.
