Von Gott will ich nicht lassen, BWV658

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

 
The melody of this chorale probably came from a secular song, and the words of the first verse have some parallels with Psalm 23. There are suggestions of joy in the figurations of the three manual voices, and the pedals place the chorale melody in the tenor. The ending of the prelude tintinnabulates in what appears to be a curious piece of sound-painting.

from notes by Ian Carson 1996
English: Ute Mansfeldt

Diese Choralmelodie stammt wahrscheinlich von einem säkularen Lied, und in den Worten der ersten Strophe können einige Parallelen zum Psalm 23 gezogen werden. In den Figurationen der drei Manualstimmen sind Andeutungen der Freude wahrzunehmen, und die Pedaltöne tragen die Choralmelodie in den Tenor. Der Abschluß des Präludiums erklingt in einer einzigartigen Lautmalerei.
