Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren, BuxWV214

chorale prelude

In the Chorale Prelude on ‘Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren’, BuxWV214, Buxtehude completely abandons his usual ‘melody and accompaniment’ formula. Instead, he makes the unembellished melody the uppermost of his four equal voices, and each of its lines is anticipated by an entry in the pedals (the Chorale Preludes of J S Bach are foreshadowed by the way in which the final soprano note is sustained).

Dans le Prélude-choral sur «Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren» BuxWV214, Buxtehude abandonne totalement son habituelle formule «mélodie et accompagnement» pour faire de la mélodie non ornée la première de ses quatre voix égales; chacune de ses lignes est anticipée par une entrée au pédalier (la manière dont la note de soprano finale est tenue préfigure les préludes-chorals de J. S. Bach).

In dem Choralvorspiel „Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren“, BuxWV214, verzichtet Buxtehude auf seine Formel „Melodie und Begleitung“ völlig. Stattdessen legt er die unverzierte Melodie in die höchste seiner vier gleichen Stimmen und antizipiert alle Melodielinien jeweils mit einem Pedaleinsatz (die Art und Weise, mit der der letzte Sopran-Ton ausgehalten wird, nimmt die Choralvorspiele von J.S. Bach vorweg).
