Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich, BWV605

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein
arranger
commissioned by Harriet Cohen and first published by Oxford University Press in A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen; first performed at the Queen's Hall on 17 October 1932

 
Constant Lambert, whose name is seldom associated with early music though in fact he did a large amount of arranging, especially for the ballet, chose the chorale prelude Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich BWV605 from the Orgelbüchlein. In this sprightly yet reflective piece he keeps a constant four-part texture, each part rhythmically differentiated from its fellows, and scorns any extra embellishment.

Constant Lambert, dont le nom est rarement associé à la musique ancienne—alors qu’il réalisa beaucoup d’arrangements, surtout pour le ballet—, puisa dans l’Orgelbüchlein le prélude-choral Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich BWV605, une pièce ensemble guillerette et méditative, dans laquelle il conserve constamment une texture à quatre parties, chacune rythmiquement différenciée des autres, et rejette toute ornementation supplémentaire.

Constant Lambert, der selten in Zusammenhang mit früher Musik erwähnt wird, obwohl er tatsächlich sehr viel und vor allem für das Ballett arrangiert hat, wählte das Choralvorpsiel Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich BWV605 aus dem Orgelbüchlein. In diesem ebenso lebhaften wie reflektierenden Stück behält er durchgängig eine Struktur von vier Stimmen bei, die rhythmisch voneinander unterschieden sind, und verachtet alle zusätzliche Verzierung.
