Another transcription for organ has been made of this same Sinfonia by Marcel Dupré, but Guilmant's one is much more successful. That transcription was recorded by Jean Guillou on his cd "Organ Encores" on the Alpes d'Huez organ.

Misc. Comments

For the 1731 Council Election

Commentary on the movements

  1. Sinfonia - an arrangement of the prelude from Bach's Partita for solo violin, BWV 1006. A solo organ plays the original violin part, while the orchestra adds an accompaniment.
  2. Wir danken dir, Gott, wir danken dir - a chorus sung and played by the whole ensemble. This was later adapted as the Gratias and Dona nobis pacem of Bach's Mass in B minor. The text is from the 75th psalm.
  3. Halleluja, Stärk und Macht (Halleluja, strength and might) - a tenor da capo aria, accompanied by a solo violin and continuo.
  4. Gottlob! es geht uns wohl! (Praise God! It is well for us!) - a recitative sung by the solo bass.
  5. Gedenk an uns mit deiner Liebe (Consider us with your love) - an aria for the soprano in the rhythm of a siciliana, accompanied by oboe, strings and continuo.
  6. Vergiß es ferner nicht, mit deiner Hand (Do not forget later, with your hand) - a recitative sung by the alto with a final Amen from the choir.
  7. Halleluja, Stärk und Macht (Halleluja, power and might) - a reprise of the first part of the tenor aria, but now with solo organ rather than violin, and sung by the alto.
  8. Sei Lob und Preis mit Ehren (Glory and praise with honor be) - the fifth verse of Johann Gramann's chorale, Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren played and sung by the whole ensemble.
