Meine Seele erhebt den Herrn, BWV648
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
