Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, BuxWV196
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Fantasia on ‘Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ’, BuxWV196, has a ten-bar introduction in which the melody appears in long notes in the upper voice and the left hand has a single-voice accompaniment consisting mostly of semiquavers. Thereafter the work seems to be proceeding along the lines of a typical Buxtehude Chorale Prelude, with the embellished melody accompanied in the usual way by the left hand and pedals, but there is a graceful, jig-like interlude (at 1'00'' to 1'15'') and instead of proceeding more or less consistently, Buxtehude explores a number of different textures and figurations and concludes with a lengthy cadenza-like coda over long-held pedal notes.
