Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ, BWV697

composer

 
Luther derived the text of this hymn, ‘Praised be you, Jesu Christ’, from a Latin sequence which is also the original source of the melody. Torrents of downward scales suggest the descent of the heavenly host.

from notes by Ian Carson 1996

Luther leitete den Text dieser Hymne von einer lateinischen Sequenz ab, die auch den Ursprung der Melodie darstellt. Reißende Ströme abfallender Skalen deuten das Herabsteigen der himmlischen Schar an.

aus dem Begleittext von Ian Carson 1996
Deutsch: Ute Mansfeldt
