WRONG AUTHOR? It seems this music is from Martin Luther, and only arranged by JSB. It doesn't appear in any of the "official" lists of JSB music. --Giulia tonelli There might already be a page under the German title to move this apparent contafactum to. The new link doesn't display readable noteheads for me, so I can't try to ID. Richard Mix (talk) 23:56, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Title: Aperite Portas
Description: The midi file plays ELLACOMBE, a tune originally published in 1784 with "Ave Maria, klarer und lichter Morgenstern" and arranged in its most familiar form in the Mainzer Gesangbuche 1833. J. S. Bach (d. 1750) seems an unlikely candidate for author.
