Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn, BuxWV191

chorale prelude

The Chorale Prelude on ‘Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn’, BuxWV191 adheres to the basic formula of ornamented melody (right hand) and accompaniment (left hand and pedals), but the Advent melody is embellished to such an extent that we seem at times to be listening to a free extemporization.

Le Prélude-choral sur «Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn» BuxWV191 adopte la formule basique de la mélodie ornée (main droite) avec accompagnement (main gauche et pédalier), mais la mélodie de l’Avent y est si fioriturée qu’on a parfois l’impression d’entendre une improvisation libre.

Français: Hypérion

Das Choralpräludium über „Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn“, BuxWV191 bleibt bei der Grundformel der verzierten Melodie in der rechten Hand und der Begleitung in der linken Hand und den Pedalen, doch die Adventsmelodie ist so reich verziert, dass sie wie freie Improvisation klingt.
