Description

Arrangement based on Bach's harmonisation of the old German Christmas tune O Jesulein süß
I have provided five different sections here which can be performed in sequence or separately during an event.
Section 1 is the original Bach version with the top instrument one octave higher
Section 2 provides a highly ornamented version of the tune on the top instrument and a few decorations in voice 2
Section 3 and 4 switch the voices round so that voice 3 has the melody or ornamented version and the top 2 voices take the lines of the lower 2
The final section is the same as section 1 except that the parts are quieter and more legato.


O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!
Des Vaters Willn hast du erfüllt;
Bist kommen aus dem Himmelreich,
Uns armen Menschen worden gleich,
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

[O little one sweet o little one mild
You have fulfilled your Father's will
You've come down from the heavens
And become the same as us mortals
O little one sweet o little one mild]

O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild,
des Vaters Zorn hast Du gestillt;
du zahlst für uns all uns´re Schuld
und schaffst uns deines Vaters Huld,
o Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

[O little one sweet o little one mild
You have calmed your Father's wrath
You pay for all our sins
and give us your Father's favour
O little one sweet o little one mild]

O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild,
mit Freud´ hast du die Welt erfüllt;
du kommst herab vom Himmelssaal,
zu trösten uns im Jammertal,
o Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

[O little one sweet o little one mild
You have redeemed the world with joy
You come down from Heaven
and console us in the valley of misery
O little one sweet o little one mild]
