Das ist je gewißlich wahr (This is now the gospel
truth), BWV 141, is a church cantata formerly
attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, but composed by
Georg Philipp Telemann.
The cantata was composed for the third Sunday of Advent
in 1719 or 1720. The libretto is based on a reading of
1 Timothy 1:15, and a text by Johann Friedrich
Although this piece was originally scored for three
vocal soloists (alto, tenor, and bass), a four-part
choir, two oboes, two violins, viola, and basso
continuo, I created the arrangement for Winds (Bb
Trumpet, Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn &
Bassoon) and Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
