Johann Sebastian Bach: Exalted flesh and blood

Johann Sebastian Bach

Exalted flesh and blood

Cantata for the 2nd day of Pentecost

BWV 173, 1728ca

Description

Bach created the cantata "Erhöhtes Fleisch und Blut" by setting the sacred words to what had originally been the music of a secular cantata, presumably for the festival of Pentecost in 1727. Bach made few alterations to the musical structure, but he enlarged the original solo scoring for soprano and bass to a four-voice ensemble. Particularly notable among the solo movements is the extensive duet for soprano and bass in the form of a minuet, which in its musical language is certainly unique in Bach’s cantatas. The dancelike final chorus brings the four voices together, and gives highly effective expression to the joy of Pentecost.
