Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan, BWV1116

Neumeister manuscript

BWV1116 is through-composed, with each successive line of the chorale treated in sequence, rather than appearing in two sections as so many of the Neumeister chorales. Again, the counterpoint underneath the chorale (which is heard again in the soprano) is derived from the chant. There is rhythmic progression through the piece, reminiscent of other Bach preludes, with quavers animated into semiquavers towards the end.
