GENEVAN 138

Harmonizer (alt. harm.): Claude Goudimel

The music of Claude Goudimel (b. Besançon, France, c. 1505; d. Lyons, France, 1572) was first published in Paris, and by 1551 he was composing harmonizations for some Genevan psalm tunes-initially for use by both Roman Catholics and Protestants. He became a Calvinist in 1557 while living in the Huguenot community in Metz. When the complete Genevan Psalter with its unison melodies was published in 1562, Goudimel began to compose various polyphonic settings of all the Genevan tunes. He actually composed three complete harmonizations of the Genevan Psalter, usually with the tune in the tenor part: simple hymn-style settings (1564), slightly more complicated harmonizations (1565), and quite elaborate, motet-like settings (1565-1566).

Notes

GENEVAN 138 was first published in the 1551 edition of the Genevan Psalter. Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) harmonized the tune in 1985. See also the 1564 alternative harmonization by Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) with the melody in the tenor (facing page). This second setting can be useful for a choral stanza (for example, st. 2) or for an alternate organ accompaniment. A sturdy Ionian (major) tune, GENEVAN 138 is a bar form (AABC) that repeats lines 1-2 and 3-4. This joyful music should be supported by bright and full organ registration and sung majestically.
