Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV695

composer

 
BWV695 is a ‘Fantasia’, highlighting the freer nature of the arrangement. The chorale is given in the alto, in the middle of a three-part texture that has the feel of a dance from a mature keyboard work—compare the gigue of the G major keyboard partita—and contains echoes of the same style. The structure of the piece follows the chorale, with the first half repeated. As expected, the counterpoint that weaves around the chorale is derived from it, neatly following the chorale phrase-by-phrase.

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.
