Notes

Johann (Hans) Kugelmann (b. Augsburg, Germany, c. 1495; d. Konigsberg, Germany, 1542) adapted NUN LOB, MEIN SEEL from the song “Weiss mir ein Blümlein blaue” and first published the tune in his Concentus Novi (1540). A bar form, this German chorale consists of six long lines sharing some similar melodic and rhythmic patterns. NUN LOB was originally associated with a setting of Psalm 103 ("My soul, now praise the LORD. . .") in the Lutheran tradition, but it has a solemnity appropriate for Psalm 109.

Johann Kugelmann was trumpeter, music director, and composer at the court of Margrave Albrecht V of Brandenburg. His compositions include music for two K&oumlnigsberg songbooks as well as melodies and harmonizations for a manuscript collection of devotional songs by Heinrich von Miltitz. Kugelmann's best known work, Concentus Novi (1540), contains thirty of his original compositions.
