Misc. Comments

For the 5th Sunday after Trinity

Commentary on the movements

  1. Chorus: Wer nur den lieben Gott läßt walten. A simple, but lengthy opening chorus in Bar form.
  2. Recitativo (Bass): Was helfen uns die schweren Sorgen? The chorale is delivered first, then recitative, then more chorale, etc.
  3. Aria (Tenor): Man halte nur ein wenig stille. A joyous, virtuosic (quite high) tenor aria with strings in 3/8.
  4. Aria Duetto (Soprano, Alto): Er kennt die rechten Freudesstunden. This was later arranged as BWV 647, the 3rd Schübler Chorale.
  5. Recitativo (Tenor): Denk nicht in deiner Drangsalhitze. The chorale is delivered first, then recitative, then more chorale, etc.
  6. Aria (Soprano): Ich will auf den Herren schaun. Obbligato oboe here takes on a concertante part. The music is full of expressive "sigh" motives.
  7. Choral: Sing, bet und geh auf Gottes Wegen. A plain chorale setting.
