Every harmonic and melodic element in this work was derived from the chorale, Jesu, wahres Brot des Lebens from Bach's Cantata, Schmuke dich, o liebe Seele (BWV 180) including the initial statement of the chorale in its original form. This work is rhythmically demanding, melodically and harmonically intriguing, and extremely interesting and enjoyable for any audience.
