Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan kam, BWV685

composer
1739; Clavier-Übung iii, Leipzig

 
The manualiter setting, in a simpler three-part texture, is built from motifs which are themselves derived from the chorale. Despite its brevity, it is nevertheless ‘amongst the most closely reasoned of the whole collection’ (Williams 2003 p.420), with a dense web of motivic connections to the chorale.
