Mensch, willt du leben seliglich, BuxWV206

Chorale Prelude

In the Chorale Prelude ‘Mensch, willt du leben seliglich’, BuxWV206, each line of the Lutheran melody is introduced by, and is the basis of, a brief passage of imitative writing, the melody itself, lightly embellished, being given to the uppermost voice and played on a separate manual.

Dans le Prélude-choral «Mensch, willt du leben seliglich», BuxWV206, chaque phrase de la mélodie luthérienne est introduite par ce qui lui sert aussi d’assise: un bref passage en écriture imitative, la mélodie même, légèrement ornée, étant confiée à la voix supérieure et jouée sur un manuel séparé.

Im Choralvorspiel „Mensch, willt du leben seliglich“, BuxWV206, führt eine kurze auf der lutherischen Melodie basierende imitative Passage jeweils eine Zeile der Melodie selbst ein, die leicht verziert der höchsten Stimme übergeben und auf einem separaten Manual gespielt wird.
