Ich hab mein Sach Gott heimgestellt, BWV707/708

composer

 
Johannes Leon wrote eighteen verses for this chorale which begins ‘I have committed myself to God’. The association is with death and resurrection. The melody comes from a sixteenth-century song, and the chorale version of the melody is played here before the fugal prelude (BWV707, an early or possibly spurious work) and a colourful chorale harmonization (BWV708).

from notes by Ian Carson 1996

Johannes Leon schrieb achtzehn Strophen für diesen Choral. Kernbegriffe in diesem Werk sind Tod und Auferstehung. Die Melodie stammt von einem Lied aus dem siebzehnten Jahrhundert, und die Choralversion der Melodie kommt im fugalen Präludium (BWV707, ein frühes oder möglicherweise unechtes Werk) und einer anschaulichen Choralharmonie (BWV708) zum Vorschein.

aus dem Begleittext von Ian Carson 1996
