Gottes Sohn ist kommen, BWV703

composer

 
The chorale melody sets a Christmas hymn by Johann Roh published in 1544. It announces that God’s son has come to earth to set us free. In this fughetta the first line of the melody is set against sparkling counter-subjects.

from notes by Ian Carson 1996

Die Choralmelodie ist ein Weihnachtslied von Johann Roh, das 1544 veröffentlicht wurde. Es verkündet die Ankunft des Sohn Gottes auf Erden zu unserer Erlösung. In dieser Fugette ist die erste Notenlinie der Melodie kontrastierend zum funkelnden Gegenthema der Fuge instrumentiert.

aus dem Begleittext von Ian Carson 1996
