This portrayal of Job's suffering as a test of his belief in God is dramatically and expressively. Its symmetrical form (Chorus, Alto-Recit., Trio, Alto-Recit., Chorus) can be seen as symbolic and the question Was ist der Mensch? (What is human beeing?), which is expressed in several melodic-harmonic variations in the opening chorus, seems to symbolically represent the search for the answer. The recitative and arioso call for four solo voices but a choral performance of these sections is also possible. Performance material available on hire./ Scoring: strings,, Timp
