I sang as a bass Am Abend nach dem Lobgesang EKG 549
and as a member of Die Zeitlupe
at a memorable "Tischabendmahl" on Maundy Thursday in 2006 in Michaelskirche Bremen-Grohn.. It describes the intercourse between the Saviour and his disciples leading up to the Easter events.
It may be found in Evangelisches Gesangbuch
, the words are by Detlev Block and the music by Herbert Beuerle
. It has a whole 10 verses but generally only 2 or three are sung during a service. Generally too, the congregation will join the choir. On the occasion given above however, we the choir, had it to ourselves. Each verse ends with a wonderful Keri elision!
(Lord, have mercy). A 4-part arrangement was written by Zeitlupe's leader, Jürgen Blendermann.
