Note by Note Translation into French of Bach Cantatas

The German text, and a note by note translation in French on the same document, allows the non-Germanists to understand the symbolic system contained in each word or in each sentence.

The translation maintains the meter of the original text and, as often as possible, the placement of words which are featured with special affect in the music.

This sometimes requires abandoning normal word order and the contraction of syllables. It means that the translation should be followed while listening to the cantata and, if possible, reading the partition.

Traduction en Francais Note a Note des Cantates de Bach

Le texte allemand et la traduction note à note en français sur le même document permet au non germaniste de comprendre le symbolisme contenu dans chaque mot et dans chaque phrase.

La traduction maintient la ryhtmique du texte original, et aussi souvent que c'est possible, la place des mots qui ont une expression musicale particulière.

Cela implique parfois l'abandon de l'ordre normal des mots en français et la contraction de certaines syllabes.

Cela sigifie que la traduction soit suivie si possible en écoutant la cantate et mieux encore en lisant la partition.
