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 chorale prelude is part of the now-famous Neumeister Collection, discovered -- or rediscovered -- only in 1985 by organist/musicologist Christoph Wolff. He was in the midst of doing research at the Yale Library associated with the 300th anniversary of Bach's birth when he stumbled across this collection of 82 chorales by various composers. Of them, 38 have more or less been attributed to Bach, including this one, "Nun lasset uns den Leib begraben" (Now Let Us Bury the Dead). It is a mostly somber piece, but its gentle and consoling manner imparts a brightness to its character that lifts it above any morbid or gloomy expressive manner. Bach presents the chorale theme in single notes at the outset, but gradually gives it fugal properties, the textures never really fattening though, and the tone remaining subdued throughout. The melody itself has a consoling manner, though it is tinged with mournful aspects. In the second half, it becomes brighter and more hopeful, even turning somewhat glorious near the end. As usual, Bach deftly captures the spirit of the chorale's text here.

Although originally written for Organ, I created this Arrangement of the Chorale Prelude "Nun lasset uns den Leib begraben" (Now Let Us Bury the Dead) BWV 1111 for Double-Reed Quartet (Oboe, English Horn & 2 Bassoons).
