Johann Sebastian Bach: On Jesus Christ’s ascent on high

Johann Sebastian Bach

On Jesus Christ’s ascent on high

Cantata for the Feast of Ascension

BWV 128, 1725

Description

After breaking off the annual cantata cycle at the end of March 1725 Bach set a series of cantata texts by the Leipzig poet Christiana Mariana von Ziegler, who maintained one of the first literary-musical salons. The large scale chorale chorus ties this work to the chorale cantatas. The central bass aria "Auf,auf, mit hellem Schall" with solo trumpet is note-worthy since in place of a middle section in the aria, here Bach employs an accompagnato recitative.
