Here now a duet from the cantata BWV 32 "Liebster Jesu, mein Verlangen", which Bach composed in 1726 for the 1st Sunday after Epiphany. It is again a dialogue cantata, with the protagonists Jesus and the soul. The duet comes before the final chorale at the end of the "Auseinandersetzung", with the title "Nun verschwinden alle Plagen" ("Now all plagues disappear"), making it clear that the soul now rests amicably and in harmony in Jesus.
Appropriate to this good mood, this transcription sounds rhythmically strongly emphasised and, above all, light. The soprano and bass solo voices sound on the solo movement with the beautiful Trompette en chamade, the oboe on the swell, the strings, among which a concertante violin cavorts on the Hauptwerk and the pedal .... right, is taken up by the basso continuo.
