Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats, BWV42
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The sinfonia to Cantata 42 (‘Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats’), composed for 8 April 1725, is a charming but active movement for Bach’s basic orchestra of oboes and strings, which was presumably designed to prepare the listening congregation for the description of the appearance of the risen Christ to the disciples who had just assembled and locked themselves into a room.
