Dulcis Jesu memoria

jubilus Bernardi (better: pseudo-Bernardi)

 

12th C text(Oxford, Bodleian Library, GB-Ob Laud misc. 668; with music notation, for this, see Helen Deeming, 'Music and Contemplation in the Twelfth-Century', Journal of the Royal Musical Association vol. 139 (2014), 1-39. Latin text and litteral translation by Helen Deeming, appendix 2 (a.c., 35-39). In this article Prof. Deeming argues - quite convincingly - that the music notation in this manuscript served for 'spiritual singing', a kind of mystical contemplation. She reads the melody as a form of exegesis.

 

The hymn (it is no hymn properly speaking, more a sequence as suggested by the melody) does what it says: it gets you from the sweet memory of Jesus to the experience of his (real) presence; it is self-referential and auto-performative. Apparently it served outside liturgical contexts for the first three centuries. Only in the 15th century the text is introduced in liturgy in connection with the Offices of the Holy Name of Jesus (first week of January): For this it was cut in three pieces: "Jesu dulcis memoria" (Vespers), "Jesu rex admirabilis" (Matins), "Jesu decus angelicum" (Lauds). By then the text already deviated considerably. Not only truncated, but corrupted and with changes in the order, doublettes and additions of all sorts. (Alert: the inversion of the first two words is a sign you are not dealing with a medieval original). A  comprehensive historical and text critical analysis and edition was provided by the benedictine scholar André Wilmart, Le "Jubilus" dit de Saint Bernard (Étude avec textes), Roma 1944 - published posthumously.

 

Migne, Patrologia Latina 184, still attributed the song to St. Bernard and un-critically (re-)printed one of the popular versions. You can read this edition here (48 stanzas).  The English metrical translation by Edward Caswall (1849) is well known. Mr. Caswall was a friend of J.H. Newman and also converted from Anglican to Roman-catholic. The Latin version he translated was - this goes without saying, and not at all blaming mr. Caswall - simply the one in the breviary, thus not one of the medieval originals: more stanzas and sometimes based on different lessons. I added the 'apocryphical' stanzas (flushed right and in italics).

 

Es gibt viele Deutsche übersetzungen. Manchmal wird Martin Moller's Ach, Gott wie manches Herzeleid genannt (1584), aber da gibt es nur einzelne Zitate. In Johann Arndt's Paradiesgärtlein voller christlicher Tugenden, wie solche zur übung des wahren Christentums durch andächtige, lehrhafte und trostreiche Gebete in die Seele zu pflanzen (1612) steht das Lateinische Original zusammen mit einer übersetzung (zuerst nur 18 Strophen (1612), später 48/52 strophen): O Jesu süss! wer dein gedenckt. [not always exactly the same translation].  Die übersetzung wird oft Martin Moller zugeschrieben, stammt aber von den Jesuiten Conrad Vetter (Paradeissvogel : Das ist Himmelische Lobgesang ... dadurch das menschliche Hertz mit Macht erlustiget, 1613), wie schon Spitta gezeigt hat. Am besten gefällt mir Johann Heermann's übersetzung (1630? - Devoti musica cordis... , Wackernagel: besser 1644 - sehe unten - metrisch interessant weil Heermann Alexandriner dichtet. Einfluss von Martin Opitz?).

 

Heinrich Schütz hat die Jubilus Bernardi - Deutsch - zweimal inkorporiert (partim) in Symphoniae Sacrae III: O süsser Jesu Christ, wer an dich recht gedenket [Heermann]- SWV 405 und O Jesu süss, wer dein gedenkt [Arndt]- SWV 406. In  Zwölf geistliche Gesänge ist Heermanns' übersetzung wieder präsent: O süsser Jesu Christ, wer an dich recht gedenket - SWV 427. In O Bone Jesu, fili Mariae virginae  (SWV 471) zitiert er einige Strophen auf Lateinisch (auf youtube choraliter: 1:19).
