Ach Gott vom Himmel sieh darein, BWV741

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The generally pessimistic tone of Psalm 12, ‘Help Lord, for the Godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men’ on which the chorale Ach Gott vom Himmel sieh darein is based, is matched by the anguished chromatic counterpoint of BWV741. The chorale is developed in canon throughout; occasional use of double pedalling enriches the texture even further.
