The Neumeister Collection is a compilation of 82 chorale preludes found in a manuscript copy produced by Johann Gottfried Neumeister (1757–1840). When the manuscript was rediscovered at the Yale University in the 1980s it appeared to contain 31 previously unknown early chorale settings by Johann Sebastian Bach, which were added to the BWV catalogue as Nos. 1090–1120 and published in 1985.

This is another of the Bach chorale preludes unearthed in 1985 by Christoph Wolff, who discovered the Neumeister Collection at the Yale Library. Most of the Neumeister Bach works are believed to date to the years 1700 - 1708, and this one, "Ehre sei dir, Christe, der du leidest Not" (May You Be Praised, Christ, for You Suffer Pain), was probably written in the earliest years of that span. It exhibits the influence of both Pachelbel and Buxtehude and is somewhat unusual in its consistent use of what German writers call Vorimitation: thematic material is anticipated throughout the work in an imitative, fugue-like manner. For all its seemingly rigid formal qualities, this work presents the chorale theme in a majestic and imaginative way, growing from modest textures at the outset to grander and more colorful ones later on. As the work progresses, its mood takes on a more ecstatic manner, the music a fuller and more complex character. In the end, this approximately two-minute chorale prelude will likely strike Baroque enthusiasts as a compelling even if still youthful work from the pen of the young Bach.

This is one of 38 Bach works rediscovered in 1985 by musicologist Christoph Wolff at the Yale Library. Johann Gottfried Neumeister assembled 82 chorales by various composers, but after his death in 1840, the collection passed hands and eventually found its way to Yale, where it was filed away and consigned to oblivion. This chorale prelude, "Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu dir" (Out of the Depths I Cry to You), is an attractive work that employs a chorale theme used earlier by composer Georg Böhm (1661 -- 1733). Bach's G major chorale prelude here uses a technique called vorimitation, where imitation of the thematic material anticipates the theme itself. The chorale melody is given a majestic, if slightly somber treatment in the first half of the work, while the music becomes more animated and more contrapuntal in the latter part. Still, even though the stately character of the piece yields somewhat to a livelier, almost ecstatic manner, the mood of the piece remains largely serene and subdued. This attractive chorale prelude has a duration of about two minutes

Although originally written for Organ, I created this Arrangement of the Chorale Prelude "Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt" (Adams fall from grace) BWV 1101 for Brass Quartet (Bb Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn & Euphonium).
