Das alte Jahr vergangen ist, BWV1091

Neumeister manuscript

This is a beautifully unfolding prelude, with the chorale at the top of the texture. The effectiveness of the setting is generated by a slow-moving counterpoint and driven by sustained rhythmic syncopations. Bach maintains the modal quality of the chorale’s melody in the prelude’s harmony, a fact that accounts for the often unexpected harmonic shifts (Williams 2003 p.546).
