Abstract:
The motets Der Gerechte kommt um, Jauchzet dem Herrn alle Welt and Ich lasse dich nicht have figured prominently in the ongoing discussion regarding the authentic and spurious motets of Johann Sebastian Bach. While the high musical quality of these compositions has long been recognized, disagreement over their authorship has continued because of the complexity of their source transmission. Evaluation of previous scholarship in light of recent investigations into the source transmission of these pieces suggests that all three works were, indeed, the handiwork of J. S. Bach. In support of this premise, a look at stylistic evidence derived from these pieces and selected cantatas and motets by J. S. Bach makes clear that an attribution to J. S. Bach is in the realm of very high possibility.
