This is the second of two performances of this chorale that I'm uploading today.

As I understand it, the chorale, "Gelobet seist Du, Jesu Christ" is one of the greatest and most important of all Lutheran Christmas hymns.

It appears as though some/many scholars attribute this work to Johann Michael Bach (1648-1694), the first cousin, and the once removed and father-in-law of J. S. Bach.

This setting is the more overtly "joyful" of the two. Certainly, it is the more extroverted of the pair.

The registration used is:

Rugwerk: Holpijp 8', Quintadena 8', Sexquialtera, Cornet
Hoofdwerk: Octaaf 8', Octaaf 4'
Pedaal: Praestant 16', Subbas 16', Octaaf 8'

The score is attached below.

These two uploads continue my commitment to uploading at least one piece through the Advent season, and culminating on January 6th, the feast of the Epiphany.
