Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr, BWV711

composer

 
The text ‘Solely to God on high be honour and glory’ is a paraphrase by Nikolaus Decius published in 1522 of the Gloria. This Bicinium sets the simple lines of the chorale as a single strand in the right hand against an elaborately contrived ‘cello’ obbligato for the left hand.

Der Text ist eine Paraphrase des Gloria von Nikolaus Decius, die 1522 veröffentlicht wurde. Dieses Bicinium setzt die einfachen Zeilen des Chorals als einzelne Stimme für die rechte Hand, während die linke Hand ein reich ausgearbeitetes ‘Cello’-Obligato erhält.
