Von Gott will ich nicht lassen, BuxWV220
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Based on a melody later worked by Bach, in the Leipzig Chorales (the ‘Eighteen’), the Chorale Prelude on ‘Von Gott will ich nicht lassen’, BuxWV220, is typical of Buxtehude’s procedures in having the melody treated line by line, each introduced by a short episode. The first line is presented without embellishment; subsequent ones are increasingly embellished, and the last is extended into a florid coda above a long-held tonic pedal.
