Bach Cantata

German Pronunciation
A) Audio by German speaker:  Please scroll to the very bottom of this page and click on it to download the mp4 file "O ewiges Feuer...".   Depending on your browser it will immediately start an audio player, or you may have to click on the downloaded file.  
(Sorry I haven't figured out how to get the file positioned here.)

B) approximate Phonetic Syllables by English speaker:


O ewiges Feuer, o Ursprung der Liebe,
O eh-vee-ges foyer, O oor-shproong dare lee-buh


Entzünde die Herzen und weihe sie ein.

Ent-soon-duh dee hare-tsen oont vye-uh zee ine

Laß himmlische Flammen durchdringen und wallen, 

Lahs him-le-sheh Flah-men doork-dreeng-en oont vahl-en

Wir wünschen, o Höchster, dein Tempel zu sein, 

Veer vin-chen, o Hue-ster, dine Tempel tsu zine

Ach, laß dir die Seelen im Glauben gefallen

ahk, lahs deer dee Zaylen im Glow-ben gefahlen  (glow as in glower)


Friede über Israel.

Dankt den höchsten Wunderhänden,

Dankt, Gott hat an euch gedacht.

Friede über euch zu senden.

HAYDN MASS No. 13  Creation Mass

Performance Recording 

On the progression bar you'll notice small orange markers.  These seem to denote breaks between pieces, and may help you reach a specific chorus.  This will too:
Gloria p24 ----> 6:17
    Quonium (in Gloria) p49 ----> 13:30
Credo p66 ----> 17:20
Sanctus p105 ----> 27:25
Benedictus p117 bar 21 ----> 31:00
Agnus Dei p141 bar 33 ----> 39:00

Haydn Creation Mass

Note: at Agnus Dei p141 bar 33, this performance starts to vary from our score.  But don't panic, the cyberbass aid, below, does match our score.  (The learnchoralmusic aid seems to be the same variation as the Performance, so not a good choice for the Agnus Dei.)  And thanks to Dave Armstrong here is a performance video of our version of Agnus Dei:
