Cantata 156 was written for the third Sunday after Epiphany in 1729, and was first performed on January 23 of that year. The text is by Picander, one of Bach's favorite librettists. of the four cantatas written by Bach for the feast (72, 73, 111 and 156), it was the last, and the only one scored for solo voice. Like Cantatas 73 and 111, it is a choral cantata, employing a choral melody in several movements. Cantata 156, in fact, employs two different melodies and choral texts in the second and sixth (final) movements, respectively; the second uses "Machs mit mir, Gott, nach deiner Güt" (Schein, 1628), which "Herr, wie du willt, so schicks mit mir" (Binemann, 1582) is reserved for the finale. This version of the piece was adapted for Contrabass Clarinet along with a piano accompaniment that comes with the product.

    It’s wonderful to see a solo for contrabass clarinet, but the sheet music needs to be written an octiive lower. It is performed an octave lower than it is written.
