Machs mit mir, Gott, nach deiner Güt, BWV957

Neumeister manuscript

BWV957 appears in two versions, one with the chorale, which appears following a fugue, and the other with only the fugue (BWV957/1). The fugue subject, a long run of semiquavers, disguises the chorale melody, and is written in a similar style to an invention with the entries of the main material imitated at octaves. Following the fugue, the chorale can be heard in full, harmonised in four parts. The text of the chorale was written by a previous Leipzig Thomas cantor, J H Schein (Williams 2003 p.536).
