Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, BWV665

composer
1708/17; revised into Leipzig Chorales collection, the '18' circa 1744/7

 
BWV665 is in four clear sections, each relating to one phrase of the chorale, with a coda. This is a strange setting, with the melody alternating at the bottom and the top of the texture (pedal and RH). The ending is particularly striking, the biggest of the collection thus far, gathering the disparate elements of the setting (Williams 2003 p. 378), and increasing on the final page from three to eight voices (Stinson 2001, p. 102).
