'Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan', performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach, originated in Bach’s second year in Leipzig. He was working at the time on a complete series of ‘chorale cantatas’, taking inspiration each week from a well-known hymn. He usually used the words of the first and last verses literally and arranged the in-between verses to suit the sermon of the day – in this case, the Sermon on the Mount.
Recorded for the project All of Bach on February 7th 2015 at the Grote Kerk, Naarden. If you want to help us complete All of Bach, please subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/2vhCeFB or consider donating http://bit.ly/2uZuMj5.
