Notes

SONNE DER GERECHTIGKEIT was originally the tune to a fifteenth-century folk song, "Der reich Mann war geritten aus," and it was adopted by the Bohemian Brethren for 1566 hymnal, Kirchengeseng. The tune is thus a contrafactum, changed from the folk/court use to church use. The title is the German incipit for the chorale most commonly associated with the tune. SONNE DER GERECHTIGKEIT is a bright tune characterized by a rising initial motif and forceful rhythms. Sing it in unison to a full organ registration and at a good tempo. Use brass and timpani for very festive singing. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
