Examples Of Consecutive V7 Chords In A Trio Sonata


Recommended Posts

This might sound a little strange, but I am looking for an example of a section in a baroque trio sonata, or perhaps any chamber work (preferably from a slow movement) that features consecutive dominant 7th chords in a chromatically descending sequence. 


For an idea of what I'm talking about, watch this video and fast-forward to about 40 seconds.




It's the opening chorus from Bach's St John Passion. But the instrumentation is too big so it doesn't really work for me.


I plan to quote the excerpt in a string trio I am writing, in case you're wondering why I have such a specific wish.


But I haven't found anything so far.. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
