J.S. Bach: The Church Cantatas, Vol. 3: Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt, BWV 112

In this video

BWV 112 (8 April 1731) is a chorale cantata. The chorale `Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt’ is a rhymed version of Psalm 23. The hymn tune in the opening movement is in the sopranos; the horns and the general musical atmosphere make for an intensely beautiful pastorale. Orchestra and continuo refer to the chorale melody, as do the other three voices. The alto aria with oboe d’amore keeps the pastoral atmosphere; after the grass of the Lord’s wholesome Word we now encounter the straight paths of his commandments. An arioso and recitative for bass paints the dark valley in dark colours, and then one of Bach’s most fascinating duets follows. The violin twice plays a delightful motive followed by a downward run. This is then sung by the soprano and tenor, continually changing roles. Both sing very high notes, and everything echoes the chorale melody, which is then heard in full in the final chorale to which the horns give an added glow.

Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Artists: Netherlands Bach Collegium, Holland Boys Choir & Pieter Jan Leusink (conductor)
