Something of an oddity, the single movement cantata BWV 53 is now considered of uncertain provenance and it has been suggested that the work may be by G.M. Hoffman (thought also to be responsible for BWV 189). The work remains in Anhang II of the BWV (reserved for those works whose attribution is still uncertain). Listening to the cantata, some of its thematic material is suggestive of Bach but the accompanying bells would be unique amongst Bach's surviving output!

Schlage doch, gewünschte Stunde, BWV 53, is an funeral cantata aria, composed for contralto Georg Melchior Hoffmann in around 1730 in Leipzig. The instrumentation was originally written for two violins, viola, glockenspiel, bass and contralto solo.

Please note that I took creative license with this piece and as such, it may not appeal to all listeners (musically, spiritually or emotionally). I do not intend to offend anyone so I will apologize up front!
