Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, BWV731

composer
1708/17; Weimar ?

 
In Liebster Jesu, the chorale melody is given to the right hand, whose cantabile quality is brought out by elegant ornamentation. The accompaniment is marked by suspirans figures that propel the music forward, and by descending scales in the pedal. Williams highlights the relation between BWV731 and its neighbour, BWV730: the two are juxtaposed in the source. BWV730 shares some similarities with its more famous neighbour, whilst its third chorale phrase is different.
