Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV695


‘Christ lay in the bonds of death’ is an Easter hymn by Martin Luther, set to the tune of another hymn for the same festival. The prelude is a fantasia in the form of a trio, with the chorale appearing in the alto, played here on the 4’ pedal stop.

from notes by Ian Carson © 1996

Dieses ist eine Osterhymne von Martin Luther, die zur Melodie einer anderen Hymne für denselben feierlichen Anlaß vertont wurde. Das Präludium ist eine Fantasie in Gestalt eines Trio, in dem der Choral in einer Altstimme hervorscheint, die hier mit dem vierten Registerzug des Pedals gespielt wird.
