On Jesus Christ's ascent on high (Cantata for the Feast of Ascension). Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Edited by Julia Ronge. For ATB vocal soli, SATB choir, oboe I/oboe d'amore, oboe II, oboe da caccia, trumpet, 2 horns, 2 violins, viola, basso continuo. Stuttgart Urtext edition. Cantatas, Ascension. Choral score. Text language: German/English. Composed 1725. BWV 128. 8 pages. Duration 22 minutes. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.3112805).

ISBN M-007-16192-7. With Text language: German/English. Cantatas, Ascension.

After breaking off the annual cantata cycle at the end of March 1725 Bach set a series of cantata texts by the Leipzig poet Christiana Mariana von Ziegler, who maintained one of the first literary-musical salons. The large scale chorale chorus ties this work to the chorale cantatas. The central bass aria "Auf,auf, mit hellem Schall" with solo trumpet is note-worthy since in place of a middle section in the aria, here Bach employs an accompagnato recitative.
