Alle Menschen müssen sterben, BWV643

circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

The final two chorales focus on death. BWV643 is based on a funeral text from 1642, ‘All mankind must die’; the affect has been described as ‘rapturous’ (Williams 2003 p.313). The motif that runs through the entire chorale is the suspirans, but deftly worked to bind the music together. Note the leaping pedal line throughout.
