Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750): EILT, IHR ANGEFOCHT'NEN SEELEN Bass aria (with SAT chorus) from the St. John Passion. If you say "Wohin" to somebody who has once sung the St. John Passion, he/she will know what you are talking about... Well, I am myself a choral bass singer, so I have never had problems with this particular movement ;-) The handwriting is by Johann Nathanael Bammler, who was a prefect in St. Thomas Boys Choir (Leipzig, Germany) and an assistant to Bach in the late 1740s. The St. John Passion was composed in the beginning of 1724 and had its first performance on Good Friday the same year (April 7). The original score by Bach is now lost. In the late 1730s, Bach began writing a new fair copy of the score, but he broke off his writing in the middle of the recitative "Derselbige Jünger". It is known that a planned passion performance in 1739 was cancelled by the church authorities in Leipzig, because Bach had not in due time seeked their approval of the passion text. Possibly this incident explains why he did not complete the score at that time. In 1749, in connection with a new performance, the score was completed by Bammler. Bach finally reviewed the score and corrected various mistakes. Eilt, ihr angefocht'nen Seelen, Geht aus euren Marterhöhlen, Eilt - Wohin? - nach Golgatha! Nehmet an des Glaubens Flügel, Flieht - Wohin? - zum Kreuzeshügel, Eure Wohlfahrt blüht allda! Haste, ye, O sorely tempted spirits, Go forth from your torment's caverns, Haste - Where to? - to Golgotha! Put ye on of faith the pinions, Flee - Where to? - the cross's hilltop, For your welfare bloometh there!
