Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr, BWV664

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

 
In BWV664 the affect projected is one of joy, expressed in a lively trio setting that bears a similarity in style to the first movement of the G major Sonata. The opening phrase of the chorale is embellished into the main motivic idea. There is also tight motivic derivation in the pedal bass line. The final act of the pedal is to intone the first phrase of the chorale—a summing up.
