Notes

Set to a German chorale text, "O mein Jesu, ich muss sterben" (O my Jesus, I must die), O MEIN JESU was published in Geistliche Volkslieder (1850). Paul G. Bunjes (b. Frankenmuth, MI, 1914) composed the harmonization for Lutheran Worship (1982). O MEIN JESU is in rounded bar form (AABA') with identical rhythms in its four musical lines. The music is well suited to part singing and bears a stately tempo.

A graduate of Valparaiso (IN) University, Bunjes also earned a Ph.D. in music from the Eastman School of Music, Rochester, New York. He was an elementary school teacher and administrator for fifteen years and since 1951 has served on the faculty of Concordia Teachers College, River Forest, Illinois. Bunjes is noted as an organ-building consultant. He served as musical editor of Lutheran Worship (1982) and prepared many harmonizations for that hymnal, using his own name as well as two pseudonyms, Wilhelm Quampen and George Leonard.
