Misc. Comments

Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorale]: Herr Christ, der einge Gottessohn. Unusually, the alto has the chorale theme, thus making it harder to distinguish. The extra-high sopranino recorder also shrieks enough to distract from the chorale theme.
  2. Recitativo (Alto): O Wunderkraft der Liebe. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Tenor): Ach, ziehe die Seele mit Seilen der Liebe. A virtuoso recorder part is here brought to the fore in this otherwise rather lackluster aria.
  4. Recitativo (Soprano): Ach, führe mich, o Gott, zum rechten Wege. Secco recitative.
  5. Aria (Bass): Bald zur Rechten, bald zur Linken. Illustration of the text is prominent here. The changes in harmonic motion are here very interesting.
  6. Choral: Ertöt uns durch dein Güte. A plain chorale setting.
