About Cantata No. 56

Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen, BWV 56, is a church cantata which Johann Sebastian Bach composed for the 19th Sunday after Trinity. It was first performed in Leipzig on 27 October 1726, and is part of Bach's third cantata cycle. The composition is indicated as solo cantata while it requires only a single vocal soloist, in this case a bass. Bach rarely used the word cantata to refer to a composition: the autograph score of BWV 56 is one of a few cases where he did.
