Lobt Gott, ihr Christen, allzugleich, BWV609

composer
circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

 
The pedal quaver line underpins lively semiquavers, providing a full texture to this Christmas chorale, the text emphasising the ‘opening up’ of heaven. Williams highlights the ‘two great ascents’ of the pedal line (Williams 2003 p.255), nicely capturing the ‘vivid counterpoint to the chorale-melody’, rather than anything strictly symbolic.
