Unknown occasion.

Commentary on the movements

Versus 1. Chorus: In allen meinen Taten. A french overture to begin. The slow section at the beginning is instrumental; the chorale is then added to the fugal section.
Versus 2. Aria (Bass): Nichts ist es spat und frühe. A continuo aria with a rather vocal main theme.
Versus 3. Recitativo (Tenor): Es kann mir nichts geschehen. Secco recitative.
Versus 4. Aria (Tenor): Ich traue seiner Gnaden. A highly concertante solo violin part adds vigour to this movement.
Versus 5. Recitativo (Alto): Er wolle meiner Sünden. Recitative with string accompaniment.
Versus 6. Aria (Alto): Leg ich mich späte nieder. Fully concerned with illustrating the text, this movement is full of the contrasts contained therein.
Versus 7. Duetto (Soprano, Bass): Hat er es denn beschlossen. A duet with continuo alone. One of the more relaxed and "enjoyable" movements in the piece.
Versus 8. Aria (Soprano): Ihm hab ich mich ergeben. Two obbligato oboes with rather difficult parts accompany another relaxed movement.
Versus Ultimus. Choral: So sei nun, Seele, deine. A plain chorale setting with obbligato strings.
