J.S. Bach: The Church Cantatas, Vol. 4: Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, BWV 12

In this video

After a very atmospheric opening sinfonia, the opening chorus of BWV 12 (22 April 1724) presents a chaconne of great beauty. That Bach thought well of it is shown by the fact that he gave it a place in the Mass in B Minor. An intense alto recitative sings of the sorrow through which we must enter the kingdom of God; both the sorrow and the `eingehen’ are vividly illustrated, the latter both in the violins and in the alto part. The alto then sings a noble aria full of rest and quiet, the chance to stress the contrasts this time not taken by Bach. The bass aria continues in the same vein, the following of Jesus illustrated in the quiet, `going’ rhythm, ending in an ascending figure referring back to the recitative. A remarkable tenor aria follows in which the seeking solo part is sustained by a colourful continuo theme which keeps coming back; the trumpet plays `Jesu, meine Freude’ (Bach possibly thinking of the verse `Weicht, ihr Trauergeister’). The final chorale has a shining fifth part for the trumpet (with oboe). Hearing the tune of `Was Gott tut’, we realise that it has already been referred to in the bass aria!
