Cantata BWV 3
Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid [I[
Examples from the Score

Bach's 'kernel' idea which issues directly from the text. Notice that Bach offers the hope of ascending out of tribulation in the strings while cleverly disguising the painful descent in a chromatic scale (indicated by the upright arrows) in the oboi d'amore.
