This website here is a saviour, it gives you worksheets, cribsheets, dos and don'ts, its helping me harmonising my chorale right now

The method section outlines the best method to use when harmonising your chorale, the voice leading section outlines the best way to create nice voice leading, the dos and don'ts gives a table with the things you should try to add to your chorale and the things you should try and avoid, but by far and away the most useful section is the fingerprints section.

The fingerprint section has resources on how to do some of the progressions that Bach uses himself. These cadential progressions are super useful if you revise them, because when you start a chorale you can immediately notice "ah, that's a 2-2-1 cadence, I know what to do here". The website comes equipped with examples, and worksheets helping you work out what the progression is doing and how to write your own. The only problem I've found with it is that the midi files don't seem to work.

Anyways, sorry for long answer, but that's the go to revision source for bach chorales. Make sure you go onto the fingerprints section, print out the worksheets and work your way through them. And try harmonising your own chorales; my friend looks up a random chorale, takes the melody line and tries to harmonise it himself.

Hope that was helpful!
