Cantata BWV 51 and the Rosicrucian connection:
Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen
=> The partition, dead form of the work
An initial remark strikes quickly and invites further: the score totals 355 steps, or 355 is transcribing digital Frater Christianus Rosencreutz. By
leaving naturally guided by the cutting style of the work, then we see easily that these 355 steps are divided in 129 old style (the first three
movements) and 226 modern style (the chorale and alleluia).
129 is the transcript of Sepulchrum ... which actually evokes something old. As for the 226, it is the number of years between the birth of RC and the
discovery of his tomb, or the birth of Martin Luther and the announcement of the renewal "confirmed" by the celestial discoveries of Kepler.
At this point of the study, hope is fading already a coincidence: it will disappear forever. It is not without evoking the division of the Bible in an
Old Testament imposing strict laws ( "the yoke of the law") and New affirming "freedom of the Gospel" (theme Rosicrucian and Lutheran), division,
which bounces the despair of believing crushed by the weight of his sins to the confidence in divine mercy.
Push further. The 129 measures burial of part stand out naturally in three movements households respectively 68, 24 and 37 measures.
The first of these numbers is well known: 6.8 = 2x1x3.8 So Bach, who affixes as usual his seal on the first movement.
24 is both the transcript of ACTA (altar CRC) and the number of thrones celestial court of the Apocalypse of John.
37 is the number of reasons that led the Brotherhood to reveal its existence is also the numerical equivalent of X + P, whose letters form the
interlaced monogram of Christ and remember the name of Rosencreutz whose arms were a cross (Kreuz) St. Andrew (X) surrounded by four roses (Rosen
German, Greek Podon, where the initial P) and the seal of Martin Luther.
37 This is reflected in the Marriage chymical, including 37 of the 100 chapters deal with culture, based on admiration of the great work.
Any part of the cantata announces renewal, a rebirth, a revelation and a risk of Apocalypse, contrasting with the form of "archaic" (according to
the criteria of 1730) to music and with the idea of the grave: the coincidence opposite exceeded cleavages.
The choral ensemble + hallelujah splits logically into 119 + 107 steps: 119 transcribed Nomen Nescio, name of the fellow who discovered the tomb, and
107 Compendium (summary) that evokes the prophetic epitaph, also discovered by Nomen Nescio. All numbers of measures of writing have a meaning
consistent with all Frater Christianus Rosencreutz, whatever the interpretation adopted:
Finally, "Gott Jauchzet" draws parallels the epic Rosicrucian and life of Christ: Johann Valentin Andræ conceived of history as cyclical ...
1604 = Opening of the Tomb (Right side of picture)
226 = Choral & Alleluia (Subtract)
1378 = Starting year of Rosicrucians
=> The musical performance makes room for life
Some may object that our reading of this digital sheet music covers only the written part and ignores the two occasions mentioned in the arias.
Thus restores audible form by adding the times: we must add 29 measures in the first aria and 15 in the second.
The first part of the cantata (the old style) is therefore inflated to 129 + 29 + 15 = 173 steps, the second bearing his 226.
Now 173 reads 17.3 ... so RC The written form of the partition designs digitally which contains a tomb, when opened by running the piece, the founder
of the Brotherhood.
And the music makes the writing lively.
This process transforms addendum to the details of the first part
In audible form, 68 of the first aria becomes 68 + 29 = 97 therefore the transcription of Bach is that of Christian.
In the second aria, the monogram of Christ mentioned by 37 to 37 + 15 = 52, transcript Iesu.
And adding that 52 to 24, found 76 recitative therefore 2x1x38 Bach.
Returning to the small diagram above we see that all numbers of the audible form have meaning consistent with that of the written form
Beautiful confirmation of the definition of gematria, the study of connections between words with equal digital transcripts.
It is over the possibility of a happy accident. Note that all invocations of Christ in Greek is: XP (kristo, christo) Iesu Christo, which recalls the
legacy of the Pythagorean brotherhood and concerns Hellenizing of Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon, concerns reiterated by the obvious.
