#lent2021: Jochim Trede plays Bach

Today I’d like to share with you Jochim Trede at our organ playing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Chorale Prelude “O Mensch, bewein’ dein’ Sünde groß”. Bach’s “Choralbearbeitung” takes the tune of the Lutheran hymn “O Mensch, bewein’ dein’ Sünde groß” (“O human, bewail your great sin”) and stretches it into long ornamented arcs. It is the virtue of music that the music does exactly what the words prompts us to do: The hymn says “bewail your sin – cry!” and the music bewails and cries.
