Directions and Help

  • As an exercise, listen to the full setting of this Bach chorale excerpt from his Christmas Oratorio. Try to notate the outer voices. Analyze the two-voice counterpoint by identifying intervals between soprano and bass.

  • You may listen to the individual voices if this is too difficult for you.

  • Bach set this chorale, entitled Ermuntre dich, mein schwacher Gott, in triple meter (No. 102).
