Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt, BWV1101

Neumeister manuscript

This is a contrapuntal setting, in four parts, the main musical material of the pre-chorale introduction marked by the chorale’s melody. The text explored Adam’s original sin in the Garden of Eden. The musical figures used throughout appear common-enough, resulting in a prelude that, as Williams notes, ‘has no obvious Affekt’ (Williams 2003 p.555), perhaps surprisingly for a text that is given very different and expressive treatment elsewhere (see the setting in the Orgelbüchlein, BWV637).
