O Mensch, bewein' dein' Sünde gross, BWV622

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
O Mensch, bewein is one of Bach’s most famous chorale preludes; he uses the same melody in the closing chorus at the end of the first part of the St Matthew Passion. Here he presents a highly ornamented version of the melody above a relatively simple harmonisation, with an extraordinary chromatic twist in the final cadence. The text is by Sebald Heyden (1525) and the melody, from the same year, by Matthias Greitter.
