This serene Sonatina from Cantata 106, ‘Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit (God’s time is best)’, is the prelude to a contemplative funeral cantata in its original setting. Here transcribed for solo organ, Bach’s scoring is appropriately muted and should be emulated by avoiding stops with too brilliant a sound. Originally published in Bach Transcriptions for Organ.
