Geistliches Lied, Hob XXVIa:17

First line:
Dir nah’ ich mich, nah’ mich dem Throne
author of text

Geistliches Lied comes from Haydn’s second set of XII Lieder für das Clavier published in 1784. The only religious text in the collection, it is characterized by sforzato outbursts of grief that disturb the gradual unfolding of the Adagio cantabile melody.
