about

Cantata No. 4 is probably my favorite of J.S. Bach's numerous cantatas> It has a lot of nuanced vocal writing. I decided to pick this quartet to sequence.

lyrics

Es war ein wunderlicher Krieg,
Da Tod und Leben rungen,
Das Leben behielt den Sieg,
Es hat den Tod verschlungen.
Die Schrift hat verkündigt das,
Wie ein Tod den andern fraß,
Ein Spott aus dem Tod ist worden.
Halleluja!
