Trinitatis V or 5th Sunday after Trinitatis

Today is Trinitatis V or the 5th Sunday after Trinitatis. Three cantatas for you today.

Wer nur den lieben Gott läßt walten, BWV 93, is a choral cantata from the second Leipzig cycle, first performed on July 9th 1724. It is based on a hymn by Georg Neumark (1621-1681), written in 1641, in the middle of the Thirty Year's War, when he had to flee his home in Thüringen but finally found safety and employment in Kiel.

Siehe, ich will viel Fischer aussenden, BWV 88, is from 1726, and is based on the evangelical reading of the day: the selection of Simon Petrus, a fisherman, as Jesus' first disciple, and the Miraculous Draught of Fish.

The last one, In allen meinen Taten, BWV 97, a chorale cantata, dates from 1732 and it is uncertain for which occasion this cantata was actually written. However, on a a later manuscript Trinitatis V is noted, so reason enough to include it in today's playlists. Enjoy!
