Cantata Insights: Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden, BWV 6 | Bethany Lutheran Church (ELCA) | Sunday, 19. April 2020

Known as the Grand Easter Tuesday Cantata, the opening chorus resembles the closing movements of Bach's St. John and St. Matthew Passions with its form and power. The exquisite Aria for Soprano highlights the Baroque master's favorite obbligato instrument: the Violincello Piccolo. Albert Schweitzer referred to this cantata as "a masterpiece of poetry in music."
