Jesu, meine Freude, BWV1105

Neumeister manuscript

BWV1105 follows the structure of the chorale with minimum contrapuntal development or embellishment. The first half is energised by dactyl figures, and the second by the repetition of a rhythmic figure (long-short), with some runs to connect the phrases, as though the prelude were to be played as an introduction to a chorale in a service. The overall rhetorical effect of this setting is very striking, especially in some of the harmony of the final bars.
