Commentary on the movements

  1. [Chorus]: Herr Gott, dich loben alle wir. The full complement of oboes, trumpets and drums accompanies this highly brilliant and festive movement. The angels depicted here are much more bellicose than those of today, and their i much of that in this chorus. The chorale tune is sung plain by the soprano over the typical imitation.
  2. Recitative (Alto): Ihr heller Glanz und hohe Weisheit zeigt. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Bass): Der alte Drache brennt vor Neid. A massive sound arises from the depths with all three trumpets and timpani in addition to the continuo—the old dragon in battle with the angels.
  4. Recitative (Soprano, Tenor): Wohl aber uns, daß Tag und Nacht. As opposed to the previous movement, this is a very calm movement, a plain accompagnato.
  5. Aria (Tenor): Laß, o Fürst der Cherubinen. The virtuosic flute part and coloratura tenor part in the middle section present an exciting aria that at the same time radiates "a mood of joyful abandon."
  6. Choral: Darum wir billig loben dich. A plain choral setting.
