New Music week 30: HERZLIEBSTER JESU

52 in 52Here is a setting of the 17th century Pietist hymn HERZLIEBSTER JESU (“Ah, Holy Jesus“), a hymn that has been the basis of compositions by Bach, Brahms, and many other composers over the years. This has long been one of my favorite hymns, and I have also written an SATB, a cappella setting that is available here.
