    Default Adam Krieger (1623-66): "Nun sich der Tag geendet hat"

    Adam Krieger (1634-1666): "Nun sich der Tag geendet hat" (or "Der Liebe Macht herrscht Tag und Nacht")
    From: "Arien" No. A8, published 1667/76

    Adam Krieger was a German Baroque musician, working as court musician for the Elector of Saxony in Dresden. He is mainly remembered for his songs, published after his early death in 1666 and considered a stepping stone in the development of the German Lieder tradition. This is his most famous song, still sung as a lullaby in Germany (despite its gloom-laden lyrics) and is also in the Lutheran hymnbook.

    The song was later set for four voices by JS Bach (BWV 396), but my source is rather less lofty: I have used a harmony part and guitar chords from a German children's songbook, which I think work very nicely.
