Wo soll ich fliehen hin (Where shall I flee), BWV 5, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the chorale cantata in Leipzig for the 19th Sunday after Trinity and first performed it on 15 October 1724. It is based on a chorale of the same name by Johann Heermann.

The tune for the cantata for the nineteenth Sunday after Trinity, “Wo soll ich fliehen hin,” was equally well known with a different set of words, “Auf meinem lieben Gott.” At times in his settings both for voices and for organ he had both texts in mind, particularly the fourth section of the cantata.

The Gospel reading from the 9th Chapter of Matthew finds Christ in an angry mood. He cures the man with palsy almost begrudgingly to prove his qualification for forgiveness of sins. This anger is picked up on by Bach. He often chooses the key of G minor for a key of agitation and the G minor choruses in the cantatas are, almost without exception, among his most aggressive. The harmony has an unusual static quality, which then veers off into precipitous and jagged diminished chords that lead us into unexpected territories. Seldom is Bach’s harmony so erratic, clearly calculatedly so.

"Ergieße dich reichlich, du göttliche Quelle" is the third movement from J. S. Bach’s cantata Wo soll ich fliehen hin, first performed on October 15, 1724. Bach’s manuscript score does not specify the accompanying instrument, and the original set of parts places the accompaniment in the first violin part, written in alto clef as it is in the score. The placement in the violin part suggests that Bach needed a capable player for the challenging part, and the range of the part—which employs neither the C string of the viola nor the E string of the violin—further suggests a preference for it to be played on the viola, but allowing for a performance on violin if necessary. In contemporary performances, the instrumental accompaniment has typically been played on the viola.

Although this piece was originally created for Voice (Tenor) and period instruments, I created this arrangement for Solo Concert (Pedal) Harp.
