Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin, BWV616

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
The parts of this setting ate united by a gentle undulating motif of long-short-short (dactyl), and the imitative writing in the first bar exemplifies the whole—a testament to the concentration of ideas and systematic working out of the counterpoint. The text is a setting of the Nunc dimittis, emphasising the peaceful hope of Christian death.
