Talk:Motets, BWV 225-231 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)

Ich lasse dich nicht, du segnest mich denn (Anhang., attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach) The PDF of this file has one flaw: page 5 of the PDF (page 161 of the original BGA print) has been substituted by an incorrect page - which happens to be page 261 of the BGA volume. I noticed this problem in the original PDF for the entire volume (BGA Band 39, if I recall correctly). -- Philip Legge @ © Φ 00:20, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Hmm... it's in my original PDF too... I can't do much about it...--Peter 16:08, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Why is BWV 231 spurious? It is the second movement of cantata BWV 28,from which the text has been altered and the basso continuo omitted (which in the cantata mostly doubled the vocal bass). --Molinarius 12:38, 23 June 2007 (EDT)

You’ve answered your own question. The authentic version is the second movement of BWV 28; presumably the view of Bach scholarship is that the motet BWV 231 is a contrafactum of Bach’s work, made without any authority from the composer, and hence is spurious despite embodying music that he composed.

Jauchzet dem Herrn, alle Welt

BWV Anhang 160 is missing but the part "Sei Lob und Preis" exists. A version of the "Jauchzet dem Herrn"-motet has the following movements:

  • 1. Jauchzet dem Herrn, alle Welt
  • 2. Sei Lob und Preis
  • 3. Amen (from Telemann)

Can someone confirm this version? Ahandrich 07:05, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

BWV Anh. 160 was not included in the Bach-Gesellschaft Ausgabe, so if someone has access to a source that would be helpful. Philip Legge @ © talk 06:38, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
