Christum wir sollen loben schon, BWV696


This Martin Luther chorale, ‘We should indeed praise Christ, son of the virgin Mary’, is based on the plainsong hymn ‘A solis ortus cardine’ (Sedulius), and the counterpoint of the fughetta is rich in chromaticism.

from notes by Ian Carson 1996

Dieser Choral von Martin Luther basiert auf dem Choralgesang der Hymne A solis ortus cardine (Sedulius), und der Kontrapunkt der Fugette ist mit Chromatik gespickt.
