composer
doubtful attribution

 
The chorale O Vater, allmächtiger Gott, BWV758, is based on a plainsong Kyrie. In the first three verses of this four-verse partita, the cantus firmus is clearly audible in the top part above progressively more lively figuration. In the final section it forms the bass of a trio-sonata texture.

Le choral O Vater, allmächtiger Gott, BWV758 repose sur un Kyrie grégorien. Les trois premières des quatre strophes de cette partita possèdent un cantus firmus clairement audible, à la partie supérieure, au-dessus d’une figuration de plus en plus animée. Dans la section finale, il forme la basse d’une texture de sonate en trio.

Der Choral O Vater, allmächtiger Gott BWV 758 beruht auf einem choraliter geführten Kyrie. In den ersten drei Strophen der vierteiligen Partita ist der Cantus firmus eindeutig in der Oberstimme über zunehmend lebhafter Figuration zu erkennen. Im Schlußteil bildet er den Baß der Triosonatenstruktur.
