Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, BWV666

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

 
The second setting of this chorale has the same four-section structure. Each section begins with three-part counterpoint based on the phrase of the chorale; then the chorale is heard in the upper voice. Semiquavers are introduced at phrase 3, intensified for line four and the coda, perhaps projecting an affect of joy.

from notes by George Parsons 2017
