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.

Instruments: Organ
