Description
Dû bist mîn is probably the best-known love song written in old German that has survived from the Middle Ages. It is often attributed to the famous poet Walther von der Vogelweide, who died around 1230. Unfortunately, the original 12th-century melody to which these verses were possibly has not been handed down. In his setting, Wolfgang König (*1947) delightfully interweaves the sounds of the medieval period with 21st-century music. Parallel fifths are juxtaposed with major-minor harmonies and saxophone solos embellish the choral movements that are also supported by a simple piano accompaniment. The choir consists of six voices divided into two groups. The antiphonal calls between the male and female singers mirror the love song's text: “Dû bist min, ich bin dîn: des solt dû gewis sîn” (You are mine; I am thine; of this you can be sure).
