Commentary on the movements

  1. Aria (Bass): Was soll ich aus dir machen, Ephraim. The continuous stream of text brings this closer in style to arioso than aria.
  2. Recitativo (Alto): Ja, freilich sollte Gott. Secco recitative.
  3. Aria (Alto): Ein unbarmherziges Gerichte. A continuo aria amidst secco recitatives. The aria is in da capo form.
  4. Recitativo (Soprano): Wohlan! mein Herze legt Zorn, Zank und Swietracht hin. Secco recitative.
  5. Aria (Soprano): Gerechter Gott, ach, rechnest du? Aria with obbligato oboe; "the song-like simplicity of this relaxed, almost dance-like movement forms an effective contrast with the elaborate expressiveness of the first aria"1.
  6. Choral: Mir mangelt zwar sehr viel. A plain chorale setting.
