Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV625

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
BWV625 marks the start of a series of six Resurrection chorales, this set to an Easter hymn by Luther. The motif heard throughout is four descending semiquavers that permeate. There are some musical features in this setting that tie it in to other of Bach’s versions of this chorale, for example the rising chromatic fourth in bar in the second half.
