Erwünschtes Freudenlicht (Desired light of joy), BWV 184, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed it in Leipzig for the third day of Pentecost and first performed it on 30 May 1724. Bach composed this cantata for Whit Tuesday, the third day of Pentecost. It was likely based on an earlier secular cantata that is no longer extant. BWV 184 was first performed on 30 May 1724 in Leipzig, and was performed again on 3 June 1727 and 15 May 1731.<br> <br> The opening recitative is accompanied by the "ethereal piping" of flutes and continuo. It concludes with an arioso section. The duet aria is "dynamically subtle" and in triple time, "retaining a little more of the spirit of the rustic dance". Formally, it is a da capo aria with a long ritornello. The third movement is a secco tenor recitative. It too has a closing arioso, ending the movement on D rather than the C major in which it began. The tenor aria is formally a trio sonata for voice, violin, and continuo, in adapted ternary form. It is in B minor, the only movement not in a major key. The penultimate movement is, unusually, a four-part setting of the chorale tune. The closing chorus is similar to a gavotte in style. Its middle section is a soprano and bass duet.<br> <br> Although originally scored for three solo voices (soprano, alto, and tenor), a four-part choir, two flutes, two violins, viola, and basso continuo, I created this arrangement for Winds (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn & Bassoon) & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
