Johann Sebastian Bach: Bekennen will ich seinen Namen, BWV 200

Bekennen will ich seinen Namen (I shall acknowledge His name), BWV 200, is in its original form part (Aria) of a so-called Passionsoratorium 'Ein Lämmlein geht und trägt die Schuld' composed in the 1720s in Gotha by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel. It was arranged by Johann Sebastian Bach around 1742. The aria is considered to be a cantata-fragment. It was likely written for the Feast of the Purification of Mary. The prescribed readings for the day were Malachi 3:1–4, and Luke 2:22–32.Bach likely performed his arrangement in 1742 in Leipzig.
