Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stund, BWV621

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
The harmonic working of the chorale is telling in this setting, with suspensions played off syncopated pedal notes. It is tempting to see the musical references to the number 7, present though a descending seventh motif in the pedal, as linking to the number 7 mentioned in the text (Christ’s seven words on the cross). However, this characteristic pedal motif has also been seen as symbolising more generally the death and ‘sinking’ of Christ.
