Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorale: Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgethan. A typical opening chorus, although the ritornello begins first with strings, and only later lets on that there are woodwinds in the orchestra.
  2. Recitativo (Bass): Sein Wort der Wahrheit stehet fest. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Tenor): Erschüttre dich nur nicht, verzagte Seele. A virtuoso flute part gives a striking expessive figuration to this fast-moving aria in 3/8.
  4. Recitativo (Alto): Nun, der von Ewigkeit geschloßne Bund. Secco recitative.
  5. Aria Duetto (Soprano, Alto): Wenn des Kreuzes Bitterkeiten. Another obbligato flute part, although with oboe d'amore. Imitation abounds between the voices.
  6. Choral: Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan. A plain chorale setting.
