Example 5.2

(a) “Arioso” (so designated) from Gott ist mein König, BWV 71, mvt. 4, mm. 24–25; (b) possibly Bach’s first true simple recitative, the opening of the “Hunt Cantata,” BWV 208, mvt. 1, mm. 1–2 (probably from 1713):

Du machest, daß beide, Sonn und Gestirn,

Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd!
You make both sun and stars,

What suits me is only the jaunty hunt!
