Happy to take on this. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 08:50, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Lead
  • Can we say something like (German for "They will all come forth out of Sheba") in the lead, and also in similar cases in the main article?
We could, but typically don't so far, compare BWV 1 --GA
Fine, if it is not the norm, no need. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Would be good to add "composer" or perhaps "German composer" before Bach.
same (a cantata is always composed, and there was no Germany in a political sense at his time) --GA
Fine, if it is not the norm, no need. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
  • What is "Sanctus"?
good catch, linked now --GA
  • Can "movement", "librettist", "oboes da caccia", "basso continuo", "secco", "chorale" and "horn" be wikilinked? Feel free to ignore any if they would appear too common to a reader well-versed with such compositions :)
movement, librettist, chorale: yes, instruments: better in Baroque instrumental ensemble, secco: is explained in recitative --GA
History and words
  • You may wish to repeat the links from the lead in the main article.
tried --GA
  • Can "D major" be linked? Also, why exclude this from the lead?
yes, done, - in the lead, only the load of work should be shown, the key of this piece (which isn't the cantata doesn't matter --GA
  • but it as assumed to be stanza I think it should be "is", not "as".
you are so right
  • The source for the last line?
any from Christmas oratorio, - do we have to copy? --GA
Well, just don't leave anything without an inline citation, raises eyebrows. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
I gave it a ref --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:50, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
Scoring and structure
  • Delink recitative and aria, they are duplinks.
yes, they are, but readers may jump to this from the TOC --GA
Oh, I thought we could do without them. No trouble. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
Music
  • Its melody, in triple time is set for four parts. Is the comma needed or should we add a comma after "time"?
added, good point --GA
Selected recordings
  • on the Bach-Cantatas website Perhaps add "official" to this, as there could be many others of the same sort but unofficial?
but is it? - it's a great website, but to be used with care, - I rely on it only for the recordings which are documented very well, up to the names of instrumentalists, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:02, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
You mean it is not official? No changes needed then. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

Rest looks good. These points addressed, I would be happy to promote this. Cheers! Sainsf <^>Feel at home 09:03, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much for diligent reading and good comments! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:02, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
And thanks from my side for writing such a masterpiece! Sainsf <^>Feel at home 07:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

Fixes done, can be promoted now. Cheers! Sainsf <^>Feel at home 01:06, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
