Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Chorale Prelude on Munich

Shippable Product

Scored for Organ

A quiet, six-minute composition of four variations on the German chorale tune MUNICH, adapted by Mendelssohn, that is commonly associated with the text "O Word of God Incarnate." Written in D Major, the melody is first presented on a soft solo reed in meter. A chromatic variation without pedal in B minor is next, followed by one in which each phrase is repeated an octave higher, and finally by a return to the solo stop that augments and embellishes the melody. The harmonies are pleasing and the tune easy to follow.
