Erstanden ist der heilige Christ, BWV628

circa 1713/7; Weimar; Orgelbüchlein

This is set in a bright D major to musical figures that, as previously, also suggest ‘rising’, from the initial alto rising scale, echoed in the tenor, and the pedal rising fifth; these permeates through the setting. Bach’s affect suits the mood of the text: a joyful ‘Hallelujah’ to the holy risen Christ in a 1544 version of the Latin carol ‘Surrexit Christus hodie’.
