- Described at Draeseke.org as a Cantata. Did Draeseke describe it so? Does bass violin here mean viola da braccio or double bass? Assuming double bass... - Schissel ... Draesekes word is: "Contrabassi"! Paternostergäßler. As far, as I know, Draeseke never used the word "Cantate". It was always "Schwur im Rütli" Paternostergäßler
