Herr Christ, der ein'ge Gottes Sohn, BWV601

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
The text speaks poetically of the coming of Christ, him ‘sprouting’ (entsprossen) from the Father’s heart; a poetic image that is also suggested by the motivic writing. The recurring motif in this setting is a suspirans, as in BWV599, but given a very different character: suggestive of joy. Though a common motif, this ‘must represent a conscious attempt to create new language from it’ (Williams 2003 p.244).
