Wenn wir in höchsten Nöten sein, BWV641

circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

BWV641 carries on the theme from the previous chorale, setting another text that cries out to God for help. This cry is characterised in the right hand chorale melody, beautifully embellished, with some surprising harmonic shifts above a continuo-like bass. There is a particularly touching scale in the final bar.
