Choir – Rheinische Kantorei. Composed By – Johann Ludwig Bach. Conductor – Hermann Max. Notes. Motette zu 8 Stimmen (9 Stimmen in Track Nr.
The motets are exquisitely sung by the Rheinische Kantorei under Hermann Max. Certainly, despite those moments were the melodic contour of the music is more luminous, the music is never jubilant as it can be in the music of Johann Sebastian. The texts themselves are very protestant, . never very optimistic, less "Gloria" than bemoaning the frailty and meaninglessness of earthly things, and calling upon the Lord our protector and saviour, and how His blood on the cross has redeemed us of our sins. I'm not sure that's the kind of thing Anna Amalia wanted to hear, I can easily imagine that she was very happy with her own earthly house, the little brat. German texts and excellent English translations provided.

There are six authenticated motets catalogued BWV 225–230. BWV 228 appears to have been written at Weimar, between 1708 and 1717, and the other five in Leipzig, between 1723 and 1727
