Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, BuxWV184
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude ‘Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott’, BuxWV184 is based on the melody associated with Luther’s paraphrase of Psalm 46 (‘God is our hope and strength: a very present help in trouble’). Thought to have been adapted by him from a plainsong source, it was published with the text in 1531. Richly ornamented, the melody is given as usual to the right hand, the relatively simple three-voice accompaniment to the left hand and feet.
