O bone Jesu
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The six voices of O bone Jesu are combined in an indulgent texture that reflects the self-analysis of the opening words. Praetorius sustains a narrative which incorporates aggressive rhythms to depict self-blame (at ‘quod per culpam’), gently lilting, arching lines to portray nostalgic reminiscence (at ‘Memento’), and a bitter twist to what is ostensibly sweet harmony (at the first appearance of ‘dulcissime’).
