PSALM 94
Grave, Larghetto (vs. 1, 2)
Herr Gott, des die Rache ist, erscheine. Erhebe
Dich, Du Richter der Welt; vergilt den
Hoffrtigen, was sie verdienen.

O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth,


shew thyself. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the
earth: render a reward to the proud.

Allegro con fuoco (vs. 3, 6, 7)


Herr, wie lange sollen die Gottlosen prahlen?
Witwen und Fremdlinge erwrgen sie und
tten die Waisen und sagen: der Herr sieht es
nicht und der Gott Jacobs achtet es nicht.

slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the


fatherless. Yet they say, The LORD shall not see,
neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

Adagio (vs. 17, 19)


Wo der Herr mir nicht hlfe, so lge meine
Seele schier in der Stille. Ich hatte viel
Bekmmernis in meinem Herzen, aber deine
Trstungen ergtzen meine Seele.

Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had


almost dwelt in silence. In the multitude of my
thoughts within me thy comforts delight my
soul.

Allegro (vs. 22, 23)


Aber der Herr ist mein Hort und meine
Zuversicht. Er wird ihnen ihr Unrecht
vergelten und sie um ihre Bosheit vertilgen.

LORD, how long shall the wicked triumph? They

But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the


rock of my refuge. And he shall bring upon them
their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in
their own wickedness.

Herrn Professor Carl Riedel gewidmet.

About this edition


I created this score to deepen my understanding of, and as a tribute to, both Reubkes splendid Organ
Sonata, and the LilyPond development communitys truly amazing LilyPond music typesetter. This
edition exactly follows its source: the 1871 score from the International Music Score Library Project
(http://imslp.org/); only where the original sometimes writes the music for both hands in one staff, I
use both staffs to improve readability.
The performer should have a thorough understanding of how the stops sound on a typical German
organ from the second half of the 19th century and find matching registrations at the organ on which
the piece is performed. The original score has a Vorbemerkung which notes that, if stops are named
without allein (only) appended, some other stops may be added as well, to create a good balance with
the foreground melody. Some registrations possibly refer to the new Ladegast organ of Merseburg
Cathedral, where Reubke played the premiere of this piece on June 17th, 1857. The Aeoline 16 on that
organ was a soft free reed stop and the Posaune 32 had a warm-round sound, not very loud.


Hairpins most times denote the use of a swell box, while directions like cresc. and dim. in most cases
refer to the adding resp. removing of stops. The slanted hairpins that sometimes appear below ranges
of 16th notes do not refer to swell or adding stops, but rather mean that the performer should suggest
an increasing tension by playing the notes a little over-legato (tenuto).
Wilbert Berendsen, Easter 2009
SOME SUGGESTIONS: Aside from some missing clefs, all notes, slurs, articulations, dynamics,
registrations, etc. are exactly copied from the source. At a few places however, the original text
contains ambiguities or possibly small errors. Those are listed below, with a suggested alterative.

TRANSLATIONS of some German terms:


alle Bsse all bass stops
allein only
dster dark, gloomy
etwas belebter more lively
heller brighter
hervortretend on the foreground
leiser werdend becoming softer









   

  
   

Measure 413, right hand, last beat, second sixteenth:


D instead of B:




  

Measure 411, right hand, last beat, second sixteenth:


D instead of F:


 
    
fff





 

 

Measure 181, left and right hand, fourth beat: E


instead of E-flat (like measure 33). This way the upper
voice better reflects the main theme. (One could argue
to also play measure 185 with E instead of E-flat like
measure 35 but I think that is not necessary, as the
curve of the upper voice is not affected.)

 

 


Measure 176, left hand, last beat, third sixteenth: C


instead of C-flat:

nach und nach schneller accellerate bit by bit


nicht schleppend do not slow down
oder or
ohne without
schwcher weaker
Trompete fort remove Trumpet
(viel) strker (much) louder

NB on page 10: Hold the notes from the broken chords as long as possible
