Notes

Melchior Vulpius (PHH 397) composed this short chorale tune, published as a setting for the anonymous funeral hymn "Christus, der ist me in Leben" ("For Me to Live Is Jesus") in Vulpius's Ein Schön Geistlich Gesangbuch (1609). Johann S. Bach (PHH 7) based his Cantata 95 on this tune and provided two harmonizations, one in duple and the other in triple meter, in his Charalgesänge.

Sing stanzas 1-3 in harmony with suitably prayerful accompaniment. Sing the final stanza in unison with a more full registration on the organ.
