Cantata BWV 54
Widerstehe doch der Sünde

Ref.

BWV 54

German Title

Widerstehe doch der Sünde

English Title

Stand Steadfast against Transgression (by Z. Philip Ambrose)

Event

Solo Cantata (for Alto) for the Dominica Oculi [3rd Sunday in Lent]
Readings: Epistle: Ephesians 5: 1-9; Gospel: Luke 11: 14-28
or for 7th Sunday after Trinity
Readings: Epistle: Romans 6: 19-23; Gospel: Mark 8: 1-9

Composed

Weimar, 1714
1st performance: March 24, 1715 (?) - Weimar
There are some considerable problems here that make a definite assignment impossible. We are left with the possibilities indicated in the revised (English) Dürr. Klaus Hofmann (1993) in one of the Bach journals is primarily responsible for the 1715 date. The problem with the March 4, 1714 date is that it would have occurred two days after Bach’s appointment as Kapellmeister at the Weimar court. The only reason that Oculi has been assigned is because printed text book has this Sunday assigned. This is a good reason, but because the references to the Epistle and Gospel readings on Oculi Sunday are rather vague and because Bach composed a similar early cantata as “in ogni tempo”, Schulze considers the 7th Sunday after Trinity 1714 as a possibility because some possible references to the readings for that Sunday. Dürr (English + update) state: ‘most likely in summer or autumn’ of 1714. Küster dates this cantata to before 1714. The NBA KB states that it could have been composed as early as 1713 possibly for Oculi or another suitable point in the year (in ogni tempo). Schulze also explains that the 1st mvt. was used by Bach with a different text as part of the St. Mark Passion.
