Sound in my Body

CANTATAS FOR 14th, 15th, 16th, AND 17th SUNDAYS AFTER TRINITY

JS BACH

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.
