「来たれ、異教徒の救い主よ」 "Nun komm der Heiden Heiland"
BWV 659 Nun komm' der Heiden Heiland [Come now, Saviour of the heathen], a 2 Clav. e Pedale (ornamental chorale) in G minor

Over the quavers of the continuo-like "walking bass" in the pedal, the two inner parts move forward meditatively in canon, beneath the florid and melismatic cantus firmus of "Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland". The beautiful melody, endlessly prolonged and never fully perceptible amid the freely spiraling arabesques, evokes the mystery of the incarnation; it is matched by the perfection of the accompaniment.
