Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren, BuxWV214
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In the Chorale Prelude on ‘Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren’, BuxWV214, Buxtehude completely abandons his usual ‘melody and accompaniment’ formula. Instead, he makes the unembellished melody the uppermost of his four equal voices, and each of its lines is anticipated by an entry in the pedals (the Chorale Preludes of J S Bach are foreshadowed by the way in which the final soprano note is sustained).
