Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich, BWV605
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
