Nun danket alle Gott, BWV657

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

This prelude is through-composed, with the accompaniment marked by running semiquavers: the affect of joy is unmistakeable. There is a link to the text, ‘viel zugut’—‘immeasurable good’—the semiquavers spinning through the piece giving an impression of abundance, even a never-ending quality. The inner parts are ‘rich in motifs’ (Williams 2003 p. 359) and the turn to the dominant, with added C sharp, G to D, in the second time bar, is expertly managed and surprising.
