Choral Prelude “Ich ruf zu Dir, Herr Jesu Christ,” BWV

As a result of this, the choir sound is not uniform and very uneven throughout with certain notes sticking out here and there. What an obvious way to illustrate DOWN or falling!

I am receiving all sorts of mixed messages on the chorale text and melody upon which this cantata is based. Agricola found this too much of the good The anti-nomianistic subtone, which I still hear in it, even when Agricola Johann, is not the author, gives it an aspect of theological teaching which is very normal for the first hymns of the Reformation, which were often complete catechisms Chorale cantata by J. The cantata text is formed ru the unchanged five stanzas of Johann Agricola ‘s hymn.

This version is very slow and deliberate, almost dirge-like. I hope to see many of xhrist participating in the discussion. There seems to be much confusion and misinformation regarding all these Agricolas and Pseudo-Agricolas, so that I have lost what little confidence I still had regarding the possibility that Johann Agricola herrr know which one we are talking about might be the author, or even composer of the chorale for BWV The MGG, the source for the above, jedu reports the following: The hymn therefore clearly expresses something valuable and meaningful to many communities and individuals.

The chorale melody is definitely not by Johann Agricola as it appears possibly to be even secular rather than sacred in origin, a contrafact that ivh remains to be traced to its true origin.

There jeeu of course no surprise in a Lutheran hymn being concerned with faith and perhaps antinomianism can be seen as an exaggeration of elements in Luther ‘s own thought.

Thomas Braatz wrote June 29, The accompaniment supports her sensitively, as if the instrumentalists are inspired by her singing.

In attempting to make music become more like speech, Harnoncourt chooses to emphasize the stronger accents and frequent breaks that one would hear in everyday speech and not the singing style of elevated speech that had been used for centuries in projecting ideas and emotions to an audience without the usual modern means of amplification.

When Bach made use of Agricola’s hymn it had presumably been used in worship for almost two hundred years and, as your p. After studying zealously the history of the church fathers, he rejected Luther ‘s teachings and became a Catholic preacher in Eisleben Views Read Edit View history. I like it because I fir that his singing reflects honesty.

Johann Zuu the antinomianist considered by some to be the author of the chorale text on which BWV is based, is very likely not the author of this chorale. Looking at the text it seems to me that the five stanzas are of equal merits. He is supported by sensitive accompaniment.

I wondered about the date of this cantata. This very slow version was taken directly from an AM radio broadcast where only one microphone was used.

Unfortunately there are some sloppy attacks and imprecision that reflect the lack of rehearsal time. This means, for instance, that the violino concertino placed close to the mike is much louder than the rest of the ensemble. The best soloist of this recording is Gert Lutze, who might even sound over-expressive.


In the highest range, the listener hears first the two oboes, then the violino concertino, and then, always at a lower pitch and later than the instruments before them, the 2 nd violin, then the viola, and then the bc in the bass. The accompaniment he gets from Harnoncourt is also less supportive. The sopranos sing as usual the chorale melody, doubling by the first oboe, each line of it being anby independent parts for the other voices.

Because he successfully argued for Catholicism in numerous polemic articles, Herzog Georg von Sachsen called him to the court in Dresden, where he herrr toward reuniting both confessions Catholic and Lutheran. The chorale then confirms the resolution of these problems with strong feeling and conviction.

He found it printed on a paper, from before with the title: It is that many of the things that he thought rfu correct have now been found not to hold the validity that was former ascribed to them.

I was also able to hear things that otherwise are quickly glossed over in the other recordings. Thanks for the tips for further reading Agricola 1J.
