(Buxtehude Introduction)

 

 

Praeludium in C (BuxWV 136)

 

Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g'mein (BuxWV 210)

 

 Donatello: Cantoria (detail), Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Florence 

Rejoice, dear Christians, and let us joyfully
leap and sing together with pleasure and love,
comforted by what God has done for us
and his sweet miracle.
He has gained us at a very high price.

 

 

Praeludium in fis (BuxWV146)

 

Canzonetta in a (BuxWV 225)

 

Ach Gott und Herr (BuxWV 177)

 

Alas, my God, my sins are great,
My conscience doth upbraid me;
And now I find that at my strait
No man hath power to aid me.

 

Ach Herr, mich armen Sünder (BuxWV 178)

 

Ah Lord, me a poor sinner
Blame not within thy wrath;
Thy solemn rage yet soften,
Else is my hope forlorn.
Ah Lord, may'st thou forgive me
My sin and mercy send,
That I have life eternal
And flee the pain of hell.

Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan  kam (BuxWV 180)

   

 

    

  Piero della Francesca: The Baptism of Christ, National Gallery, London

Christ did our Lord to Jordan come,
His Father's will fulfilling,
And from Saint John baptism took,
His work and charge to accomplish;
Here would he found for us a bath
To wash us clean from error,
To drown as well our bitter death
In his own blood and anguish;
A life restored it gave us.

 

 

Danket dem Herren (BuxWV 181)

 

Thank the Lord, gracious Lord,
Grateful thanks to him now give,
For His truth and goodness ever, ever live.

 

Fuga in C (BuxWV 174)
