J.S. Bach: The Church Cantatas Vol, 5: Es ist euch gut, daß ich hingehe, BWV 108

In this video

BWV 108 (29 April 1725) concerns itself with Jesus’ promise of the Holy Ghost It opens with Jesus himself explaining that he has to leave to make room for his Spirit. The bass (vox Christi) sings in a beautifully quiet, stepping rhythm. In the following tenor aria the violin jumps up and down to illustrate the doubt of which the text speaks, `gehst du fort’ has an ascending line, `glaube’ is sung to a long Halteton to illustrate that this faith is strong and confident. The tenor recitative ends in a question which is answered by a splendid setting of a text from John 16. It consists of three fugues, the third of which is based on the first one. It burns the words of Jesus into our heads and hearts, with glorious long runs on words like `reden’ and `verkündigen’, this last word being thrown back and forth between the different voices. Just before the last entrance of the fugue theme the message is twice repeated separately. A solemn alto aria then expresses how the blessings of Christ are poured out richly, with a beautiful run on `überschütte’. The final chorale sings of faith in the power of the Spirit.
