Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Set: four "Bach organs"
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
After many years of organ playing, I had not yet played any of the Orgelbuchlein chorales (too bad !). So, I recently worked on four from my favourite ones, and thought it was the opportunity to try them on different « Bach organs » with different types of registrations,,

BWV 644 Ach wie flichtig

The text is : « How vain, how fleeting is man’s life ! Like a mist, it gathers and vanishes quickly again : such is our life », The two versions with a flute 4 solo try to paint mists or clouds which gather and vanish.
