Christe, aller Welt Trost, BWV673

composer
1739; Clavier-Übung iii, Leipzig

 
The middle section of the German ‘Kyrie’ is in 6/8, with energising semiquavers. It features a falling figure (quaver followed by four semiquavers) that reminds some of similar motifs in the motet Komm, Jesu Komm (BWV229), in which they appear to the word ‘Leben’ (‘Life’). This strengthens the link which BWV673 also makes between Christ, and ‘Leben’.
