Erbarm dich mein, o Herre Gott, BWV 721 – Johann Sebastian Bach | Hauptwerk Mannheim

I was recently inspired to play this after listening to Auke Jongbloed’s rendition of it here:
From Partitura Organum: “One of the most unusual compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach, perhaps you might even call it unique, as it is literally one of a kind is the choral prelude to the choral “Erbarm dich mein, O Herre Gott”. It is unusual in Bach’s oeuvre in that it does not contain any for of counterpoint, and sets the chorale melody against an accompaniment of repeated eight note chords.” I used the Mannheim sample set by Inspired Acoustics for this recording.
