Exaudi is the 1st Sunday after Ascension Day or Exaudi, the first word of the Psalm for this day. Bach has two Leipzig cantatas for you, both with the same title, quoted from the scripture of John, where Jesus warns his disciples that they will be banished from the synagogue in a world that would not recognise his teachings.

Apart from the title, the two cantatas have little in common, with a very different structure. BWV 183 is one of the nine cantatas with a libretto by Christiana Mariana von Ziegler.
