Valet will ich dir geben, BWV736

1708/17; Weimar ?

A big and virtuosic setting of the chorale, with the melody in the pedal, very similar in feel to the opening setting of the Eighteen Leipzig Chorales which also sets its chorale melody in the pedal (BWV651, Komm Heiliger Geist), and sounding with a similar gravitas. The manual figuration, in 24/16 compound quadruple time, gives a lively gigue-like feel to the setting, perhaps in contrast to the darker text of the chorale which looks forward to heaven and says ‘farewell’ (Valet) to the evil of the world.
