This chorale prelude is the twin of the one (TWV 31:51) I posted yesterday. Where TWV 31:51 is very 'keyboard' in nature, TWV 31:52 is more instrumental. It is easy to imagine the accompanying notes being played by a basso continuo and an instrument like violin or oboe, while the chorale melody is sung. Who knows, it might be a transcription of an aria from a cantata by Telemann. As it is more melodious, I like this one personally better than TWV 31:51.
