BACH, Cantata No. 140: Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (Awake a Voice Is Calling Us; 1731), Seventh Movement: Chorale - 1:27 

Listen for the homophonic texture of four voice parts, with the chorale melody in the top voice. Notice that the orchestra duplicates the four voices and does not have melodies of its own.
