Music for this day

  • Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust, BWV 170
    (first performance 28 July 1726, Leipzig period)
  • Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BWV 9
    (first performance ? 1732–1735, Leipzig period)


Trinitatis VI is the 6th Sunday after Trinitatis. Two cantatas for this day, both from the Leizig period.

Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust, BWV 170, is a solo cantata, which means that one singer performs all arias and recitatives. This singer was clearly someone Bach respected, and there are indications that it might have been Carl Gotthelf Gerlach (1704-1761), who had been a Thomaner under Bach's predecessor (Johann Kuhnau, 1660-1722).

Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BWV 9, is a later Leipzig cantata, written somewhere between 1732 and 1735, but intended to fill some of the gaps in his chorale cantata cycle of 1724-1725. The reason is simple: on Trinitatis VI in 1724 Bach was in Köthen with his wife Anna Magdalena, most likely for a performance for his former employer, Prins Leopold of Anhalt-Köthen.
