Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (BuxWV 223)

 

 

 After Fra Angelico:  Transfiguration, San Marco, Florence, 1439-43

How beauteous beams the morning star
With truth and blessing from the Lord,
The darling root of Jesse!
Thou, David's son of Jacob's stem,
My bridegroom and my royal king,
Art of my heart the master,
Lovely,
Kindly,
Bright and glorious, great and righteous, rich in blessings,
High and most richly exalted.

Praeludium in g (BuxWV 148)

 

Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin (BuxWV 75)

 

Andrea Mantegna:  The Presentation in the Temple, Staatliche Museen, Berlin, 1460

 With peace and joy I go on my way
in God’s will.
My heart and mind are comforted,
peaceful and calm.
As God promised me
death has become my sleep.
