Dieterich Buxtehude: Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort

Dieterich Buxtehude

Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort

BuxWV 27

Description

This cantata combines two texts: “Erhalt uns Herr bei deinem Wort” and “Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich.” The Lübeckisches Gesangbuch of 1703 included both hymns, with a verse by Johann Walter added, to the melody “Erhalt uns Herr.” This was the basis for Buxtehude’s composition. The copy of the tabulature of this cantata in the Düben Collection can be dated to the summer or autumn months of 1687. The composition consists of a four-part homophonic performance of the chorale verses, with a ritornello played by the accompanying instruments between the verses. A slightly polyphonic “Amen” completes the work.
