Composed in 1728 or 1729, this festive cantata for the September 29 Feast of St. Michael employs all the musical forces available to Bach at the Thomaskirche: trumpets, timpani, oboes, strings with continuo, choir, and four vocal soloists. The opening chorus, Bach’s reworking of a movement from his “Hunt” cantata, BWV 208, will make a thrilling opening for our 49th year of Bach Cantata Vespers. The cantata concludes with the third stanza of the hymn “Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart,” which begins with the text “Lord, let at last thine angels come.”
