Aus der Tiefen
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The text of Aus der Tiefen (‘Out of the deep’) is based on the words of Psalm 130. However, Schelle did not use the whole text in its original version; instead it only appears in the three tutti sections at the beginning, middle and end of the work. For the other parts the composer used a rhymed paraphrase, which allowed him to set these verses as stanzaic arias followed by ritornelli, giving the work the appearance of a cantata.
