RESPONSE: Partita and Choral Variations on “Herzliebster Jesu” by Robert Benson
Chorale I: Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended that we to judge thee have in hate pretended? By foes derided, by thine own rejected, O most afflicted.
Partita I: Bibinium –Contemplation of the Cross
Chorale II: Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee? Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee. ‘Twas I, Lord Jesus. I it was denied thee. I crucified thee.
Partita II: Tricinium-Blodd, tears, sweat. Christ forgives the thief
Chorale III: Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered; the slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered; for our atonement while we nothing heeded; God interceded.
Partita III: Christ Commens his Spirit to the Father
Chorale IV: For me, kind Jesus, was thine incarnation, they mortal sorrow, and thy life’s oblation; thy death of anguish and thy bitter passion, for my salvation.
Partita IV: The Temple Veil is Rent in Twain
Chorale V: Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee, I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee; think on thy pity and thy love unswerving, not my deserving.
