The words are based on the Easter Gospel, the account of the Resurrection of Jesus, which is first joyfully celebrated. Then follows a call to the faithful: every Christian must make the Resurrection a reason to renew himself spiritually, so as to complete a kind of inner Resurrection himself. For his scoring-which changed slightly from performance to performance-Bach called upon a five-part choir, three trumpets and timpani, three oboes, taille and bassoon, strings and basso continuo.

Score available separately - see item CA.3103100.
