JS Bach

Ach lieben Christen, seid getrost (Ah, dear Christians, be comforted), BWV 114
Herr Christ, der einge Gottessohn (Lord Christ, only Son of God), BWV 96
Wo soll ich fliehen hin (Where shall I flee), BWV 5

An instruction to ‘Take what is yours and go away’ opens this concert of three of Bach’s most celebrated chorale-cantatas. These direct words in Cantata 114 draw from the Parable of the Labourers in the Vineyard, and are followed directly by a second instruction not to grumble when things don’t go as planned. Cantata 96 compares Christ to the ‘Morning Star’, with the appearance of a sparkling sopranino recorder, used for the first time in his cantatas, and the famous melody by Philipp Nicolai often heard at Christmas, ‘Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern’ (How brightly shines the morning star). Cantata 5 whips up a ferocious, hellish army, as the trumpet plays a ‘ferociously demanding obbligato’ (Gardiner), silenced in sudden breaks by the believer who shows the blood of Jesus, vividly depicted in a rare viola obbligato of sheer beauty.
