Der Friede sei mit dir, BWV 158 by Johann Sebastian Bach


''''''''''' (Peace be with you), '''BWV 158''', is the shortest of the cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach and features a bass soloist. It survives as a cantata for the third day of Easter but might be a fragment of a work originally written for Purification, hence there is a confusing variety of proposed composition dates, during the Weimar period[ Lutheran Church Year / Dates of "Osterdienstag" (Easter Tuesday, 3rd Day of Easter)] and 1735.David Schulenberg, ''"Der Friede sei mit dir"'' in ''Oxford Composer Companion: J. S. Bach'' ed. Malcolm Boyd
