Program Notes

Herzlich tut mich verlangen (I do desire dearly) is a German hymn, with lyrics written in 1611 by Christoph Knoll, with a melody adapted from a secular song by Hans Leo Hassler. It is a prayer for a blessed death, beginning "Herzlich tut mich verlangen nach einem sel'gen End" (I do desire dearly a blessed end). Its hymn tune, Zahn No. 5385a, was later also used for Paul Gerhardt's Befiehl du deine Wege and O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden. Johann Sebastian Bach used the hymn in his chorale prelude, BWV 727, and for his Weimar cantata Komm, du süße Todesstunde, BWV 161.
