Werde munter, mein Gemüte, BWV1118

composer
Neumeister manuscript

 
BWV1118 is set with the chorale accompanied by broken chord figurations and, like other Neumeister chorales, features a change of metre—the standard duple time (4/4) broken up with a section in compound time (12/8). The text concerns a prayer for God’s protection, and the first line of text highlights the ‘cheerful’ (‘munter’) affect of the setting that can be heard in the running semiquavers throughout.
