"Nun danket alle Gott
mit Herzen, Mund und Händen,
der große Dinge tut
an uns und allen Enden,
der uns von Mutterleib
und Kindesbeinen an
unzählig viel zugut
bis hierher hat getan."
Martin Rinckart (1636)
In August 2022, Sietze de Vries improvised a beautiful choral aria on "Nun danket alle Gott" in Helsingör (Danemark). His amazing meditative Adagio on this well known tune may be suited for many purposes.
I decided to transcribe the music and to publish it here; the score is attached.
For my recording I choosed the new Pipeloops Set of the Ahrend-organ Regensburg (D) which was built just 2020 in a middle German baroque style (according to Bach's intentions, as to be supposed). A unique new organ and the sample set sounds really good.
In October, we celebrate Thanksgiving day; this choral may fit very well.
I did another rendition here:
