Misc. Comments

For the 7th Sunday after Trinity.

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Ich glaube, lieber Herr, hilf meinem Unglauben. A movement "strikingly loose in construction" notable for virtuoso figuration everywhere.
  2. Recitativo (Tenor): Des Herren Hand ist ja noch nicht verkürzt. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Tenor): Wie zweifelhaftig ist mein Hoffen. First violin comes out of the string texture more here.
  4. Recitativo (Alto): O fasse dich, du zweifelhafter Mut. Secco recitative.
  5. Aria (Alto): Der Heiland kennet ja die Seinen. A saraband-like dance aria, becoming progressively more and more animated.
  6. Choral: Wer hofft in Gott und dem vertraut. The soprano sings the tune unadorned, while the other voices ornament their parts heavily.
