This is a very important work in the history of the German church cantata. It is the first known setting in the Concerto-Aria form, where (after a sonata) the voices sing a Biblical text, then take turns in the verses of a poetic "Aria", before repeating the Concerto (or Biblical text) to close. The poet was David Elias Heidenreich.
Edited by Gottfried Gille.
: SSATB, 2 trumpets, 2 violins, 2 violas (ad lib), viola da gamba, bassoon, continuo.
