As was often Bach's practice, he re-used music from several earlier works, including the independent secular cantatas nos. In addition to chorus, the work features soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and baritone soloists, as well as an orchestra configured dsting for each of the six sections. For these performances, Andris Nelsons and the orchestra are joined by an outstanding group of soloists and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus. In November 2017, he and the orchestra toured Japan together for the first time.
