Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam, BuxWV180

chorale prelude

The Chorale Prelude on ‘Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam’, BuxWV180, is typical of Buxtehude’s procedures, the organist’s right hand playing on a separate manual an embellished version of the melody, the left hand and pedals having a restrained accompaniment (which here seems suggestive of the Jordan’s gently flowing waters).

Le Prélude-choral sur «Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam» BuxWV180 reprend des procédés chers à Buxtehude: la main droite de l’organiste exécute sur un manuel séparé une version ornée de la mélodie, tandis que la main gauche et le pédalier reçoivent un accompagnement discret (suggérant, semble-t-il, les eaux doucement fluentes du Jourdain).

Das Choralvorspiel „Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam“, BuxWV180, demonstriert die für Buxtehude charakteristische Technik, die rechte Hand des Organisten auf einem separaten Manual eine verzierte Version der Melodie spielen zu lassen, während die linke Hand und die Pedalstimme eine zurückhaltende Begleitung haben (die hier das sanfte Fließen des Jordans anzudeuten scheint).
