Misc. Comments

For the 3rd Day of Christmas.

Commentary on the movements

  1. A motet-style movement rare for Bach's cantatas. This, combined with the colla parte instrumentation lend the movement a "severe, archaic character"1.
  2. A plain chorale setting.
  3. Secco recitative.
  4. A plain chorale setting.
  5. Full of vigorous figuration, a "fun" aria.
  6. Secco recitative.
  7. Alto and oboe d'amore, in the same register, lend this a slower dance feel.
  8. A plain chorale setting.
