Christus, der uns selig macht, BWV747
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Passiontide chorale Christus, der uns selig macht, BWV747, effortlessly combines two distinct styles into a seamless whole. For the first half of the chorale the melody, in the tenor, is embedded in a three-part instrumental texture. Later, the melody passes to the right hand where it is subjected to considerable embellishment, in fantasia style. The moving ending, a kind of unaccompanied recitative, perhaps suggests the loneliness and rejection of the betrayed Christ.
