Lobt Gott, ihr Christen, allzugleich, BWV732

composer
between 1703 and 1717

 
The chorale of BWV732 is a Christmas text, published in 1560 by N Herman. In this setting, perhaps intended to accompany a congregation, the chorale is given rich homophonic treatment with improvisatory runs in between phrases. Some have read musical symbolism into these runs, for example a rapid descending scale figure (heard in the middle of the setting in bar 8) perhaps alludes to the reference to Christ’s incarnation in the text (‘und schenkt uns einen Sohn’).
