General Information

Title: Beglückt darf nun dich (Pilgrim´s Chorus)
Larger work: Tannhäuser, WWV 70
Composer: Richard Wagner

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: TTBB
, also SATB Genre: SecularOpera

Language: German
Instruments: A cappella, or with orchestra or piano.

First published:
Description: The offstage chorus accompanies Wolfram & Tannhäuser's scene at the beginning of act III. All 3 CPDL arrangements drop the interlude between "…gepilgert hab'!" and "Durch Sühn…'" and stick close to Wagner's voice leading, with bare unisons at "Der Gnade Heil ist dem Büsser beschieden" where the full orchestra has already entered. Rutter's arrangement in European Sacred Music adds a piano introduction based on the end of Wolfram's recit. and includes the interlude and later accompaniment. Like the other 3, it omits the (interrupted) repetition da capo.

Beglückt darf nun dich, o Heimat, ich schauen
und grüssen froh deine lieblichen Auen;
nun lass' ich ruhn den Wanderstab,
weil Gott getreu ich gepilgert hab'.
Durch Sühn' und Buss' hab' ich versöhnt
den Herren, dem mein Herze frönt,
der meine Reu' mit Segen krönt,
den Herren, dem mein Lied ertönt.
Der Gnade Heil ist dem Büsser beschieden,
er geht einst ein in der Seligen Frieden!
Vor Höll' und Tod ist ihm nicht bang,
drum preis' ich Gott mein Lebenlang.
Halleluja in Ewigkeit! In Ewigkeit!
