chorale setting
Abstract:Johann Ulrich Steigleder’s Tabulatur Buch darinnen daß Vatter unser auff 2, 3, und 4 Stimmen Componirt, und Viertzig mal Variit würdt, auch bey ieder Variatio ein sonderlicher bericht zufinden. Auff Orgeln, und allen andern Musicalischen Instrumenten ordenlich zu appliciren was published in Strassburg in 1627. Exhibiting influence from the English and Netherlandish, North and South German, and Italian schools of composition, the collection includes the following genres: fantasia, toccata, fugue, canon, ornamented chorale, bicinium, and imitative and non-imitative cantus firmus settings. This encyclopedic and didactic collection of settings on Vater unser im Himmelreich is unique in its inclusion of performance indicative headings that point to the practice of collaborative performance between organ and voice and organ and a solo instrument. This thesis surveys Steigleder’s variations, with particular attention to the use of the chorale tune in motivic design.
