Born in Eisenach in 1685, Johann Sebastian Bach was educated largely by his eldest brother, after the early death of his parents. At the age of eighteen he embarked on his career as a musician, serving first as a court musician at Weimar, before appointment as organist at Arnstadt. Four years later he moved to Mühlhausen as organist and the following year became organist and chamber musician to Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Weimar. Securing his release with difficulty, in 1717 he was appointed Kapellmeister to Prince Leopold of Anhalt-Cöthen and remained at Cöthen until 1723, when he moved to Leipzig as Cantor at the School of St.Thomas, with responsibility for the music of the five principal city churches. Bach was to remain in Leipzig until his death in 1750.

As a craftsman obliged to fulfil the terms of his employment, Bach provided music suited to his various appointments. It was natural that his earlier work as an organist and something of an expert on the construction of organs, should result in music for that instrument. At Cöthen, where the Pietist leanings of the court made church music unnecessary, he provided a quantity of instrumental music for the court orchestra and its players. In Leipzig he began by composing series of cantatas for the church year, later turning his attention to instrumental music for the Collegium musicum of the University, and to the collection and ordering of his own compositions.

The so-called Kirnberger Collection (BWV 690-713), a title now generally ignored in recent editions, is a collection of music by Bach copied by or for his pupil Johann Philipp Kirnberger. The latter was born in Saalfeld in 1721 and educated in Coburg and Cotha, before, in 1739, travelling to Leipzig for lessons in composition and performance with Bach. After a period spent in Poland, he returned to Dresden, moving then to Berlin as a violinist in the Prussian royal service. In 1754 he entered the service of Prince Heinrich of Prussia and four years later that of Princess Anna Amalia, remaining in this last position until his death in Berlin in 1783. Kirnberger had the highest regard for Bach, and did his utmost to bring about the posthumous publication of the latter's four-part chorale settings.

As most Bach enthusiasts are aware, the composer wrote many works based on the chorale "Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr," including a number of chorale preludes, such as the three from the German Organ Mass (BWV 675, 676, and 677), as well as those many early efforts, including BWV 711 and 715, to cite just two. This one is perhaps his most colorful version, one that actually exhibits a certain flamboyance in its keyboard writing. The work opens with the chorale theme gloriously rendered in big, stately chords. Bach punctuates the end of each phrase here with a scampering, rather florid run. The effect provides contrast, to be sure, as well as color, though some may hear it as a prescient Bach auguring the more virtuosic side of Liszt. In the end, though, this cannot be judged as flashy music, but rather as deftly imagined writing whose juxtaposing of seemingly opposite elements amid the composer's usual brilliant contrapuntal activity yields a quite worthwhile, if minor masterwork.

Although originally written for Pipe Organ, I created this Interpretation of the Prelude (BWV 711) "Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her" (From Heaven Above to Earth I Come) for Oboe & Cello.
