Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort, BWV1103

Neumeister manuscript

BWV1103 features three-part counterpoint that eventually grows to four parts, the chorale melody informing the counterpoint, which is fugal in style. Peter Williams highlights that the chorale’s influence is mostly limited to the first line of melody, apart from the end, where the fourth line is heard (Williams 2003 p.557). Striking throughout is the melody, and resulting harmonic potential, of the opening of the chorale melody, with its yearning melodic shape.
