Herr Jesu Christ, dich zu uns wend, BWV709


The words of this chorale were composed by Wilhelm II, Duke of Saxe-Weimar in the seventeenth century, and are roughly contemporary with the melody. Bach elaborates it richly in the right hand, giving it an equally sumptuous accompaniment.

from notes by Ian Carson 1996

Die Worte zu diesem Choral wurden im siebzehnten Jahrhundert von Wilhelm dem Zweiten, Herzog von Sachsen-Weimar, ungefähr zur selben Zeit wie die Entstehung der Musik, gedichtet. Bach entwickelt das reiche Stück von der rechten Hand ausgehend und gibt ihm eine ebenfalls prächtige Begleitung.

aus dem Begleittext von Ian Carson 1996
