  Chorale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chorale was originally a hymn of the Lutheran church sung by the entire congregation.
Chorales tend to have simple and singable tunes, because they were originally intended to be sung by the congregation rather than a professional choir.
Chorale melodies were often derived from Gregorian Chant, sometimes with minor variation, and fitted with new words.

 Chorale setting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chorale setting is any of a very wide variety of musical compositions, almost entirely of Protestant origin, which use a chorale as their basis.
Plainchant, associated with the Catholic church, was largely replaced with choral music sung in the vernacular language—usually German—and the corresponding musical forms from Catholic countries, such as the motet, were also replaced with forms which used as their basis the chorale melodies instead of the plainsong from which much of the motet repertory was derived.
Some of these forms are exclusively instrumental (such as the chorale prelude, chorale fugue, chorale fantasia, chorale partita or variations, chorale ricercare/canzona) while the others are a cappella vocal (some chorale motets) or for voices and instruments (chorale cantata, chorale concerto, chorale mass, chorale monody, some chorale motets).

The chorale cantata is a cantata which is a setting of a chorale text (or partly a paraphrase of one, as in many of the cantatas of Bach's second cycle, 1724-5), generally using the chorale melody in various ways.
An earlier type was the chorale motet, a vocal work often with instrumental doubling, where the chorale served as a cantus firmus in the 16th century and later served as a basis for fugal imitation.
The chorale fantasia is a more extended organ piece based on a chorale (the term has also been used for the elaborate opening choruses in Bach's chorale cantatas); the chorale fugue is an organ fugue based on a chorale melody; the chorale partita or chorale variations is a set of variations on a chorale melody.

A chorale is a hymn of the Lutheran church sung by the entire congregation.
Although chorales were originally sung in church a cappella, several composers arranged and harmonised the melodies for several voices.
A chorale prelude includes the melody of the chorale, sometimes making it the theme as a set of variations, and often treating it as a cantus firmus to which other contrapuntal lines are added.

 CHORALE - LoveToKnow Article on CHORALE
The national character of the German chorale, and the recent great development of interest in folk-music, together with the unique importance of Bachs work, have combined to tempt writers on music to over-estimate the distinctness of the artforms based upon the German chorale.
In modern times the use of German chorales, as in Mendelssohns oratorios and organ-sonatas, has had rather the aspect of a revival than of a development; though the technique and spirit of Brahmss posthumous organ choralepreludes is thoroughly modern and vital.
