Unluckily, this soundbite made it to the magazine, a small storm was the result and AFAIK Leonhardt never gave an interview again. I once played the Water Music in an arrangement for 5 recorders. You soon notice, the effect of this piece is based on 5 percent music, 80 percent orchestration and 15 percent musicians.
Whenever you try to look behind the scenes, there's nothing. This results, not surprisingly, in two superb bass arias, filled with emotion and spiritual power. Both are on Vol. Any other favourites out there? This is a famous aria with Christ as the voice if I interpret my German correctly. Also, the bass aria with chorus from Cantata BWV 67 is simply marvellous.
I would interpret the bass voice as being Christ. Another famous bass aria is from Cantata BWV However, if you are talking about deep and wonderful bass arias, I suggest the Arioso from cantata BWV I have a recording with Theo Adam singing this that is absolutely enthralling!
I think a complete listening of all surviving cantatas is a must for all serious Bach lovers. The speaker is the evangelist, and not Jesus directly "See now, I will send out many fishers saith the Lord, whose work is to catch them. As a vegetarian and animal lover, I cannot identify with the "fishing" and "hunting" images in the opening aria - the introduction of the hunting horn to "And then I will many hunters send also, whose work is to catch them on all the mountains and on all the highlands and in all the hollows" is positively grotesque - it reminds me of the aristocracy in the UK on horses watching their dogs tear a fox to bits, and makes me really glad I escaped the pack.
But, it also tells me something about the taste of the Leipzig wolves Bach wrote his music for! But, it's with Soprano, Alto, Chorus, Bass. I don't think the bass aria with chorus is that good.

I suggest that everything, other than the final choral, was written by someone else not Bach or else its an early work by Bach written when he was But, still, you rather like those strident trumpets, don't you? This one reminds me of the wake up call at a military camp "Wake up, ye nerves and all ye members The aria is "Day and night are thine And, assuming your list is exhaustive, my two favourites seem to be the only occasions where Jesus opens a Cantata by speaking in the first person it was probably considered a blasphemy by many : BWV 86 "Truly, truly, I say to you, if any ask for something from the Father, and ask in my name, he will give it to you" BWV 87 "Till now have ye nought been asking in my name's honour" If you're interested, both are available on Volume 34 of the Rilling Cantatas with Heldwein singing bass.
And, from the perspective of Rilling's performances, they remain my favourites. The speakis the evangelist, and not Jesus directly "See now, I will send out many fishers saith the Lord, whose work is to catch them".
I find nothing offensive about hunting and fishing. Most scholars rate this movement among Bach's best in the cantatas. When I in the grave all my trouble once lay, Himself shall my Saviour my tears wipe away". I would now, today, yet, with gladness make hence my departure".
This whole cantata apart from the closing choral is awful! I suggest that everything, other than the final choral, was written by someone else not Bach or else it's an early work by Bach written when he was I certainly haven't read anything, which suggested it was not authentic.
