Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ, BWV722

between 1703 and 1717

The chorale is given straight, but ornamented, with virtuosic episodes to link the lines of the chorale, the same treatment as other chorales on this disc such as ‘In dulci jubilo’, BWV729. This type of prelude allows for virtuosity, not only in the figurations but in the harmony. BWV722 is notable for the final cadence, extended with multiple chromaticisms, such that when the final (major) chord resolves, there is a great feeling of gladness.
