A suggested trinitarian symbolism of "Contrapunctus XIX" is compared to the established trinitarian symbolism of the great Eb major (St. Anne) fugue, B.W.V.552/2, and suggested trinitarian symbolism of the C# minor fugue of "Well-tempered Clavier" (I,4). It is concluded that "Contrapunctus XIX" is a hymn to the Holy Trinity which Bach may have deliberately left unfinished because of an irregularity in the symbolism of the three persons of the Godhead which was the musical-metaphoric equivalent of the heresy of Montanus.
