Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein, BuxWV210
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Fantasia on ‘Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein’, BuxWV210 is based on Martin Luther’s Advent hymn (‘Be glad now all you Christian men’), published in about 1524; the melody is thought to have been derived by him from a secular source. The ten variations of this grand work accord with the ten verses of the hymn and deploy a fascinating variety of textures, metres and organ resources.
