Gottes Sohn ist kommen 'Gott durch dein Güte', BWV724

composer
before 1708

 
This very early prelude, probably written before Bach was at Weimar, sees Bach experimenting with canon. The chorale melody is kept at the top of a four-part contrapuntal texture. In between the chorale’s phrases the counterpoint ebbs and flows in episodes that are loosely derived from the motifs of chorale. The effect achieved through canon is best heard in the final two phrases, where the pedal entries echo the chorale melody at the octave.
