Herr Jesu Christ, du höchstest Gut, BWV1114

Neumeister manuscript

BWV1114 is set in a darker flat tonality, after that of the original chorale. This is reflective of the text of chorale, a pained expression of a troubled conscience. The melody is given expressive treatment throughout, with ornamentation in the right hand over a gentle two-part accompaniment, and throughout there are running semiquavers to give impetus. Yet the text’s affect is never far away: even the extensive semiquaver passages in the second half of the prelude seem tinged with sadness.
