Ich ruf' zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV639

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
The text of this chorale cries out to Christ for grace. It is given a beautifully characterised setting, in F minor, similarly conceived to the previous two, with semiquaver inner lines and a quaver bass. The left hand’s running line emphasises sighing figures and deftly brings out touching harmony to project the gentle melancholy of the affect. The setting sounds like a transcribed string trio, which has led some to see it as a reworking of a—perhaps lost—cantata movement.
