TitleBWV 145 So du mit deinem Munde bekennest Jesum
Occasion
GenreRefer to Ich lebe, mein Herze, zu deinem Ergötzen
ChoirRemark: This cantata was extended by a new opening movement twice and therefore is known under three different incipits: (i) Auf, mein Herz, des Herren Tag, (ii) So du mit deinem Munde bekennest Jesum, (iii) Ich lebe, mein Herze, zu deinem Ergötzen (the latter being the first movement of the initial version).
Solo voiceThe chorus So du mit deinem Munde bekennest Jesum was written by Georg Philipp Telemann, and (possibly posthumously) inserted as the new opening chorus of this cantata at a later point in time. It is not included in this performance.
