Wir danken dir, Gott, wir danken dir, BWV29

first performed 27 August 1731; Cantata No 29

Cantata 29 (‘Wir danken dir, Gott, wir danken dir’, from August 1731) opened with a delightful little movement for organ and festive orchestra which the composer had most ingeniously adapted from the violin solo prelude to the third unaccompanied Partita in E major, BWV1006—a certain Cöthen original, and arranged here in notation one tone lower.

La Cantate 29 (d’août 1731) s’ouvre sur un petit mouvement délicieux pour orgue et orchestre de fête que le compositeur a adapté d’une manière fort ingénieuse depuis le prélude pour violon seul à la troisième Partita en mi majeur, sans accompagnement, BWV1006—certainement originaire de Köthen, et arrangé ici avec une notation dans un ton inférieur.

Die Kantate Nr. 29 (komponiert im August 1731) begann ursprünglich mit einem vergnüglichen kleinen Stück für Orgel und festliches Orchester, einer geschickten Bearbeitung des Präludiums für Solovioline der dritten unbegleiteten Partita in E-Dur, BWV1006—mit Sicherheit ein Köthener Original, hier um einen Ganzton herabtransponiert.
