The cantata Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild was very probably performed for the first time on Reformation Day (31 October) 1725. The opening chorus contains several challenges, with a rapid sequence of vocal entries and intricate writing in which each singer’s voice needs to be secure in order not to fall by the wayside. From "Er wird kein Gutes mangeln lassen" at the latest, it is worth using the coach in slow mode so as not to be caught unawares by the short note values and the unpredictable text underlay.
