Christe, du Lamm Gottes, BWV619

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
This is another Agnus Dei setting, in a German translation from 1528. Bach’s setting is built on a simple descending scale in triple metre, echoed at three octaves in succession, and weaved into intricate canonic writing, ‘a peak in the Weimar canonic tradition’ (Williams 2003 p.274). Like its predecessor in the collection, the chorale does not start straight away.
