CANTATAS FOR 14th, 15th, 16th, AND 17th SUNDAYS AFTER TRINITY
Es ist nichts Gesundes an meinem Leibe (There is nothing sound in my body), BWV 25
Warum betrübst du dich, mein Herz (Why do you trouble yourself, my heart), BVW 138
Christus, der ist mein Leben (Christ, he is my life), BWV 95
Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namen (Bring to the Lord the honour due), BWV 148
Throughout the long summer and autumn Trinitarian period, the Lutheran lectionary’s emphasis on sin and sickness in mind and body reaches full tilt in expressions such as ‘The whole world is but a hospital’ in Cantata 25. But Bach’s music is the ‘balm of Gilead’ that heals all, above the ceaseless lament.
