This cantata for the 14th Sunday after Trinity was composed in August 1723 and is from Bach's first cycle of cantatas for Leipzig. It is distinguished by its unique opening chorus, which is a four-part choral fugue with independent instrumental parts in which Bach has interwoven a four-part chorale ("Herzlich tut mich verlangen") played by the winds. This is an artistic combination which expands to as many as ten real parts. The second aria "Offne meinen schlechten Liedern," is distinguished by an unusual instrumental coloring in which the soprano and the strings, supported by the oboes, are joined by 3 recorders. The edition is the product of a new evaluation of the source situation (see Bach-Jahrbuch 2006). Score and parts available separately - see item CA.3102500.
