BACH'S half-dozen Motets are practically anthems, for double or single choir. Most of the works are shorter than the Cantatas, and contain no solo portions. The orchestral part, where there is one (as in the work now to be heard), is less independent than in the Cantatas. Generally the Motets can be effectively performed unaccompanied.
The Spirit also helpeth us was written in 1729 for the funeral service of the Rector of the Leipzig Church at which Bach was organist; it was employed later for general church use.
The words are taken from Romans viii, 26 and 27, with the addition of a verse of a Chorale. or hymn.
