Richte mich, Gott, Op 78 No 2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The setting of Richte mich, Gott (Psalm 43) exchanges the double chorus of Warum toben for a single four-voice choir, and is noticeably simpler in outline. Following the stern contours of the D minor opening section, characterized by the male voices in unison alternating with the female choir in four-part harmony, the move to the relative major (F) at the words ‘Sende dein Licht’ soars away to uplifting effect. The following 3/8 andante reverts to the atmosphere and textures of the opening section before the final verses resolve former tensions in the warm glow of a D major chorale.
