Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, BWV633

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelb├╝chlein; distinctus

 
BWV633 is a beautifully serene A major setting of this chorale, texturally interesting for its five-parts that derive from the chorale heard in canon between soprano and alto, at the fifth. The text focuses on the Word of God (like that of the previous setting), but from the angle of Christ rather than the Spirit—the believer sitting at the ‘dear’ (‘liebster’) Jesus’s feet to hear his word. The motifs throughout are tightly knit, traceable to the chorale’s stepwise intervals.
