Fuga super Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr, BWV716

composer
doubtful attribtution

 
BWV716 is set in a plain counterpoint, perhaps by a young Bach (Williams, 2003, 456). As with BWV716, each phrase of the chorale is set fugally. The joyful affect of the text, Luther’s setting of the ‘Gloria in excelsis deo’ is suggested by the triple-time dance feel. Though written on two staves, in sometimes sparse three-point counterpoint, the pedal nevertheless takes a full role.
