Bach: Aus der Tieffen ruffe ich zu Dir, BWV 131

One of Bach’s earliest surviving sacred cantatas, Aus der Tieffen (Out of the deep I call, Lord, to you) is set to Luther’s translation of Psalm 130. The same text has been used in many other musical settings, including the De profundis section of many requiem masses, perhaps suggesting it was composed for a somber occasion. The cantata also features the hopeful chorale “Herr Jesu Christ.”
