- Can someone identify the text after "Von Himmel Hoch" on page 1 of Teil 1? I'm wondering about the relation between the first prelude and this chorale, since the melody doesn't seem to be quoted directly, like in every other choral prelude. - R.P.
- A german friend identified it as "oder anderes freudiges Lied" - which makes perfect sense. It explains why the prelude doesn't quote the tune, but instead just sets a general mood. - R.P.
