Ach Herr, mich armen Sünder, BWV742

Neumeister manuscript

In BWV742, the chorale is hidden in the richly ornamented line, sectioned off from a remarkable introduction by a ‘poco adagio’ marking. The ornamented chorale line continues in patterns of descending sequences and semiquavers, marked by the suspirans figure (three fast notes following a rest). The affect is one of stylized grief, expressed in writing in the Passion settings by Bach.
