Ach Gott, tu dich erbarmen, BWV1109

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
BWV1109 is set intricately, with fugal episodes interspersing the chorale melody. The ambiguous modality of the original melody is reflected in the prelude, and its initial three repeated notes give impetus to the three-time metre of the setting. The text’s request for mercy on God’s repentant people can perhaps be heard in some of the more chromatic inflections of the harmony.
