Christe, der du bist Tag und Licht, BWV1096

Neumeister manuscript

The unique feature of this setting is its structure. Though composed as a seamless whole, there are really two sections. The first consists of a fugal treatment of the first line of the chorale melody, with a total of seven statements. It is not until later—the second section—that the chorale melody is heard in its entirety, played at the top of the texture in steady minims. The melody is associated with at least two possible texts. Note that the majority of this prelude is ascribed to Pachelbel.
