    Many years ago I sang the bass solo part in this cantata, and still have a lovely newspaper review of the performance. I have never had a copy of the music, and have often wanted to see it again. I was extremely pleased with the beautiful copy I received from...

    Sheetmusic Plus. It was also amazingly inexpensive. I don't sing as much now (I am 68!), and in fact don't know how I managed to sing this Bach piece (it is quite high), but am very pleased indeed to have my beautiful, clear copy, which is in both English and German.
