Cantatas 182 and 12 are the first and second cantatas composed by Bach in Weimar after his elevation to the position of concert master in 1714. Both cantatas deal with Luther’s theology of the cross. Cantata 182 for Palm Sunday (which overlapped with the Annunciation in 1714) deals with Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem for the Passion; Cantata 12 for Jubilate features the famous original version of the Crucifixus of the Mass in B minor. The two cantatas, while very different in character, reveal the same basic underlying theology. Their tonal plans relate to Cantata 21.
