Time Signature: 4/4
Form: chorale
m0 b4 A: I
m1 vi b2 I6 b3 IV b4 V6/V
m2 E: i b2 V b2.5 V7 b3 I || b4 I
Note: the figure on beat 4 is interesting, a slowed-down version of a decorated anticipation. Could read all this as just IV6 still. Should investigate this elsewhere in the chorales.
m3 IV b2 V b3 IV6 b4 ii6/5
Note: could notate a pivot chord vi, but music seems to start up in a new key (compare m. 8)
m4 I6/4 b2 V b2.5 V7 b3 I :|| b4 A: iii
m5 IV6 b2 I b3 V b4 I6 b4.5 V7/IV
m6 IV b2 I6 b3 V || b4 b: viio6
m6var1 IV b1.5 viio6/4 b2 I6 b3 V || b4 b: viio6
m7 i b2 viio6/5 b3 i6 b3.5 iv6 b4 V
m8 i || b4 A: iii
Note: doubled seventh in m9 b2, with one resolving upwards; no root on b3
m9 vi b2 V7 b2.5 V2 b3 I6 b4 ii b4.5 viio6
m10 I b2 I6 b3 V || b4 ii
m10var1 I b2 I6 b2.5 IV7 b3 V || b4 ii
Note: pair of passing tones in alto disguises tonic arrival on b4 of m11; this is an odd and unusual passage
m11 vi b2 ii2 b3 V6 b3.5 V b4 I
m11var1 vi b2 ii2 b3 V6 b4 vi6/5 b4.5 viio6/4
m12 I b2 IV6 b3 I6/4 b3.5 IVmaj7 b4 V b4.75 V7
m13 I
