Es ist ein Ros entsprungen (A great and mighty wonder / Lo how a Rose e’er blooming) with guitar accompaniment for high voice and guitar


Arrangement for guitar and voice(s) based on the harmonisation by M. Praetorius, also including guitar chord names for convenience.

I have also provided two well-known English translations at the foot of page 2, which are:

The translation by John Mason Neale (24 Jan 1818 – 1886)
A great and might wonder,
A full and holy cure [etc]
The translation by Theodore Baker (3 June 1851 – 12 October 1934)
Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung! [etc]
