BWV 70: Wachet! Betet! Betet! Wachet!
(Watch! Pray! Pray! Watch!)

Originally written for Advent season in Weimar (BWV 70a), Bach expanded this cantata (BWV 70) for the 26th Sunday after Trinity in 1723. With a rousing opening chorus movement, Bach juxtaposes joy and somber yearning, in anticipation of the final judgment.
