Misc. Comments

For the 21st Sunday after Trinity

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorale: Was Gott tut, das ist Wohlgethan. A plain chorale setting, around which instrumental parts play separate material. Also, the first violin is the only "real" string part.
  2. Recitativo (Tenor): Ach Gott! ween wirst du mich einmal. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Soprano): Hört, ihr Augen, auf zu weinen. Obbligato oboe underlines the mournful air of the movement. However, the 3/8 time gives a lilt that would otherwise be sorely lacking.
  4. Recitativo (Alto): Gott hat ein Herz, das des Erbarmens überfluß. Secco recitative.
  5. Aria (Bass): Meinen Jesum laß ich nicht. Unison violins are the obbligato to this energetic aria.
