Puer natus in Bethlehem, BuxWV217
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude on ‘Puer natus in Bethlehem’, BuxWV217, a Christmas work, is among the simplest of Buxtehude’s chorale settings. The melody is only slightly embellished, and its lines are separated by the shortest of interludes, but there is subtlety in the way in which the pedals and the melody are at two points briefly in canon.
