Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ, BWV697


Luther derived the text of this hymn, ‘Praised be you, Jesu Christ’, from a Latin sequence which is also the original source of the melody. Torrents of downward scales suggest the descent of the heavenly host.

from notes by Ian Carson © 1996

Luther leitete den Text dieser Hymne von einer lateinischen Sequenz ab, die auch den Ursprung der Melodie darstellt. Reißende Ströme abfallender Skalen deuten das Herabsteigen der himmlischen Schar an.
