In dulci iubilo, BWV729
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Lord Berners’ reputation is chiefly as a musical humorist and ironist, but there are works (such as his Fugue for orchestra) which show he had a more serious side, and he was an impeccable craftsman. His setting of the chorale prelude In dulci jubilo BWV729 is more smoothly made into a piano piece than some of its companions in the Bach Book, contrasting grandiose chordal writing against flowing arpeggiated lines, the figuration breaking out into elated triplets and finally semiquavers as the triumphant final bars are reached.
