Introduction to BWV 116 -- Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ

Weekly reminder:

This week we continue Trinity season cantatas with BWV 116, the last of two works for the 25th Sunday after Trinity. Details of text, commentary, recordings, and previous discussion for this week are accessible via: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV116.htm

The commentary by Julian Mincham, music examples included, is especially recommended as an introduction to listening.

The BWV 116 page has convenient access to notes from the Gardiner [6], Koopman [5] (notes by Christoph Wolff), Suzuki [7], and Leusink [4] (and more!) CD issues, via link beneath the cover photo.

The chorale text and melody are accessible via links at the BWV 116 page. Francis Browne has recently added new commentary on the cantata texts to his interlinear translations, linked via [English-3I]. We can expect these to continue, not necessarily weekly. Douglas Cowling and William Hoffman are also posting relevant to chorales and other music for the Lutheran Church Year, accessible via LCY pages

I do not always take the time to check all links before posting. Special thanks to the folks who provide timely corrections.

[To Ed Myskowski] A quite lovely, unpretentious work---don't miss it! Contains one of the only three trios to be found in the 53 second cycle cantatas.

William Hoffman wrote (October 6, 2012):
Cantata BWV 116: revised chorale-cantata text comparison

Francis Browne has added a text comparison of the chorale stanzas for "Du Friedefuerst, Herr Jesu Christ" with the text for Chorale Cantata BWV 116 with the intern al movement in paraphrases in parallel format to see the adaptations the librettist wrote: http://bach-cantatas.com/Texts/Chorale001-Eng3.htm
