Product Details


"Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (Out of the depths I call, Lord, to You)," BWV 131, is among the earliest church cantatas composed by J.S. Bach.  With the text based on Martin Luther's German version of Psalm 130 and the words of a chorale, the 5-movement cantata was commissioned by the minister of a church in Mühlhausen, which is where Bach lived at the time.  The music integrates melodies from the chorale into the work and also illustrates Bach's continued interest in counterpoint.  Movements: 1. Chorus: Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (G minor), 2. Arioso and Chorale (soprano, bass): So du willst, Herr, Sünde zurechnen (G minor), 3. Chorus: Ich harre des Herrn, meine Seele harret (E-flat major-G minor), 4. Aria and Chorale (alto, tenor): Meine Seele wartet auf den Herrn von einer Morgenwache (C minor), 5. Chorale: Israel hoffe auf den Herrn; denn bei dem Herrn (G minor).  Instrumentation in set: Str(2.2[altVa1].4[2Va1.2Va2].1.1[Continuo]): SATB VS/Chor/Hpschrd (available separately).
