John Ireland chose to refashion Meine Seele erhebt den Herrn BWV648 from the ‘Schübler’ chorales; his manuscript is dated August 1931. His one-page setting underlines the fugal tendencies and questing chromaticism of Bach’s original, beginning in and finally retreating into the bass.

John Ireland choisit de refaçonner Meine Seele erhebt den Herrn BWV648, tiré des chorals «Schübler»; son manuscrit est daté d’août 1931. Cette version d’une page souligne les tendances fuguées et le chromatisme pénétrant de l’original bachien, commençant et se retirant à la basse.

John Ireland wählte Meine Seele erhebt den Herrn BWV648 aus den „Schüblerchorälen“; sein Manuskript ist vom August 1931 datiert. Die auf einer Seite untergebrachte Notierung unterstreicht die fugalen Tendenzen und die suchende Chromatik von Bachs Vorlage, beginnt im Bass und kehrt letztlich zum Bass zurück.
