  4. Cantata No 70, 'Wachet! Betet! Betet! Wachet!' BWV 70 - Johann Sebastian Bach

On 2nd November 1723, Bach was in Störmthal and performed Cantata 194 to dedicate their new organ. Full of extrovert colours, Bach adapts the structure and style of an orchestral suite into cantata form. Easter Day falls late this year and so we bring forward the cantatas Bach wrote for the final Sundays in Trinity.

These dramatic works deal with the subject of Christ’s second coming as judge of the world, and warn us to keep watch and pray (Cantata 70) or face a terrifying outcome (Cantata 90).
