MUSIC NOTES

This morning’s prelude, Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, is based on a melody by Johann Rudolphe Ahle (1625–1673). It appears in The Hymnal 1982, #440, and it will be sung as the communion hymn at Mass. In the hands of J. S. Bach (1685–1750), it is transformed into a highly ornamented soprano line, played by the right hand on a combination of solo stops.  Beneath it, there is an independent chordal accompaniment for left hand and pedals, played on quiet flutes. One of Bach’s best-known chorale preludes, it is a work of extreme sensitivity and beauty, and shows his skill in this medium at its finest……Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (1676–1749) was a contemporary of Bach and grew up in Paris, studying organ with André Raison. He found employment in the French royal household, initially supervising concerts arranged by Madame de Maintenan (real name Françoise d'Aubigné), morganatic wife of the aging Louis XIV, for her husband. Later he became organist at the Church of Saint Surplice, following the death of Guillaume-Gabriel Nivers. He composed two suites for organ, and “Dialogue sur les grands jeux” is the final movement of his Suite du premier ton, which dates from 1710.  A slow, grand opening is followed by a faster middle section, exploring a variety of different organ textures, before a return to the slow opening.
