Wir Christenleut, BWV612

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
This is a lively setting of the Christmas hymn from 1593, a text that emphasises the joy of the believer through Christ. This joy is given musical representation through a dancing triplet metre, the pedal supplying the foundation with steady quavers, and a repeating motif.
