Nun Danket Alle Gott – Karg-Elert

Nun Danket all Gott (Now Thank We All Our God) Opus 65, no.59 by Sigfried Karg-Elert (1877 - 1933)

It may not be immediately obvious that this well known piece is based on the hymn Now Thank We All Our God. Fragments of the melody are present, but mainly presented in disjointed notes (marked by an x in the score). It is perhaps easier to see than to hear.
