Bach chorales from Boyd and Riemenscheider, COMPOSITION PRACTICE, Uncategorized

Boyd Bach chorale composition exercise 2, Herr Jesu Christ du hochstes Gut (Reimenschneider 266)

As set (this time using short score):


As attempted, not idomatic and with octave parallels weakly avoided by suspensions


Last note for alto should probably be B flat to supply a third to the tonic chord

As written by Bach but note crossings twice of tenor and supplied bassparts!
