Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten, BWV690

composer

 
The existence of two separate settings of this chorale reflect its popularity for Bach—there are fourteen settings through the composer’s oeuvre. In BWV690 the chorale is set in the soprano register, with diatonic harmony beneath, though the accompaniment is marked by more energetic figuration. The chorale receives a less expressive treatment (with fewer ornaments) yet within a frame of increased variation and creativity: a texture of four parts (at most), and the feature of a suspirans figure that gives a flowing rather than triumphant quality to the setting.
