In short, we have no idea when Bach wrote the cantata, beyond the fact that the music is too sophisticated for it to be a very early work, and that the text suggests it was intended for performance in the spring.
The aria is anexquisite piece of musical irony: the poet commands the instruments to stop playing, but Bach gives his words the lengthiest, most complex and most beautiful setting possible, using a favourite ‘sleep’ motif in siciliano rhythm, gently accompanied by solo oboe d’amore and violin with continuo.
In the next recitative the poet starts to argue in favour of music, though he suddenly and inexplicably changes tack to introduce an expressive and elaborate funeral aria with flute obbligato, similar in mood and scoring to the Benedictus of the Mass in B minor.
