Sigfrid Karg-Elert (1877–1933)—Nun danket alle Gott (‘Now thank we all our God’)

The choir and organ music before and after this service of thanksgiving is based on ‘Now thank we all our God’ (Nun danket alle Gott) and on the Holy Trinity (being the ‘title’ of this church building). So the centrepiece before the service is Tchaikovsky’s Hymn to the Trinity, but there are also pieces address to God the Father (‘Lord, I trust thee), God the Son (‘Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier’) and God the Holy Spirit (‘Komm, heiliger Gott, herre Gott’)
