7 sacred songs performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral

'Schmücke dich, O liebe Seele'

Written by Johann Sebastian Bach, “Schmücke dich, O liebe Seele” is a popular choral piece rendered as “Adorn yourself, O dear soul” or “Soul, adorn thyself with gladness” in English.

A choral prelude, it is traditionally performed during Holy Communion, with influence for the song reported to have come from the work of Bach's predecessor Johann Crueger.
