Johann Sebastian Bach composed the Cantata: "Halt im Gedächtnis Jesum Christ" (Keep Jesus Christ in mind), BWV 67, in his first year in Leipzig, at the time he first performed his St John Passion. Although originally written to celebrate the First Sunday after Easter, it is especially fitting in these times and all year.

This opening chorus reflects the contrast of hope and resurrection versus simultaneous remembrance and doubt. The chorus begins with an instrumental sinfonia, the horn introducing a theme representing remembrance in a melody which resembles the choral tune of "O Lamm Gottes, unschuldig" which Bach would later use as a cantus firmus in the opening movement of his St Matthew Passion. Here he alludes to the idea that Jesus suffered innocently for the "sins of the world" before he rose again.

Although originally scored for three vocal soloists (alto, tenor, and bass), a four-part choir, corno da tirarsi, a slide horn that Bach scored for a short period, flauto traverso, two oboes d'amore, two violins, viola and basso continuo, I created this arrangement of the opening chorus using all modern instruments (Bb Trumpet, Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn, Bassoon, Violins, Viola & Cello).
