J.S. Bach: The Church Cantatas, Vol. 27: Herr Christ, der einge Gottessohn, BWV 96

In this video

BWV 96 was written for 8 October 1724, the year in which Bach wrote mainly chorale cantatas. The beautiful chorale `Herr Christ, der ein’ge Gottessohn’ is sung in the opening chorus by the altos (sustained by a trombone). The musical material of the other voices is based on the instrumental opening, which consists of figures for oboes and violins, with a hauntingly beautiful line for discant recorder soaring above them. Line 5 of the chorale reveals the meaning of this: Christ is the morning star glittering on the horizon. After a simple alto recitative a tenor aria gives the flute player something to do: the cantatas from this period have many flute passages, suggesting there was a good flautist in Leipzig at the time. Another recitative illustrating the path to heaven with an upward line, leads towards a brief but exciting bass aria. The bass sings of the many wrong steps to the left and the right that we so often take. The orchestra shows this: the instruments seem not to know where they are going, turning left and right, and playing `false’ notes on verirrter Schritt. After very low notes on sinken the way to heaven’s gate is opened. In the final chorale the transition from the old man to the new life is made once more, clearly illustrated in the basses.
