General Information

Title: Herr wie lang wilt vergessen mein
Composer: Melchior Franck
Lyricist: Hans Sachs (Wittenberg, 1526)

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: German
Instruments: Unknown

First published: 1602 in Contrapuncti compositi deutscher Psalmen, no. 9
Description: The motet is based on one of the Dreizehn Psalmen zu singen in den vier hernach notierten Tönen, a collection by Hans Sachs, (Nürnberg, 1526). Franck however does not use either one of these four tunes, but uses a tune from Geystliche gesangk Buchleyn (Wittenberg 1524), by Martin Luther and Johan Walter. This tune, originaly for Mensch wiltu leben seliglich, is possibly one of the tunes composed by Martin Luther himself.
