Komm, Gott Schöpfer, Heiliger Geist, BWV631

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
After the Resurrection comes Pentecost, chorales that feature the ministry of the Holy Spirit. First is this chorale, on Luther’s version of ‘Veni Creator Spiritus’, for Whitsunday. It is given another unusual setting, in compound time (12/8). The pedal is given only short quavers to play, on every third beat, perhaps intended to give a rhythmic portrayal of the ‘third’ person of the Trinity—the Spirit.
