Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV1100

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
This prelude features running semiquaver lines as an introduction. The chorale enters as the top part, with the two lower semiquaver lines continuing throughout. The text expresses faith in Christ, perhaps the word ‘turn’ (‘steht’) lying behind the turning quality of the semiquaver line, which also traces and fills in the intervals of the chorale. Scholars have suggested other possibilities for the composer other than Bach: Walther, or a student of Pachelbel like J H Buttstedt.
