Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV1102

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
This prelude is written as a pair, the first half of which is a bicinium: an attractive and lively two-part setting, with fragmented ornamented solo line above continuous bass line. There is lively rhythmic interest throughout, especially in the second half, which is an ‘Allegro’ consisting of luthé broken chord patterns, rather like music written for harpsichord, with the chorale melody now disguised.
