Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu dir, BWV1099

Neumeister manuscript

BWV1099 features a canon between the soprano and bass. Note that the chorale melody set is not the same as that of the other ‘Aus tiefer’ settings by Bach. Successive sections of the melody are treated differently in the prelude: canon with counterpoint; change to compound time (12/8); running quavers below single statements in the soprano; back to simple time (4/4); a motivic breakdown of the melody in descending thirds. The final cadence is marked by a dramatic change to ‘Adagio’, but an increase of the rhythmic division to semiquavers.
