Description

The chorale Erhalt uns, Herr, harmonized by JS Bach with interludes by Simon Andrews -- a very baroque setting.  The great Lenten chorale tune set for the season of Advent. 2-part (mixed) choir and organ. Very effective.  Text by Charles Coffin.

On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry
announces that the Lord is nigh;
awake and hearken, for he brings
glad tidings of the King of kings.

Then cleansed be every breast from sin;
make straight the way for God within,
prepare we in our hearts a home
where such a mighty Guest may come.

All praise, eternal Son, to thee,
whose advent doth thy people free;
whom with the Father we adore
and Holy Ghost for evermore.
