Johann Christoph Oley (1738 – 1789) was a German organist and composer. In 1755 he became organist of the church in Bernburg, but moved to the church of St Stephan in neighbouring Aschersleben in January 1762 because of its superior organ. At least 77 works for organ solo by his hand survive. The most interesting combine his fondness for strict canon with passages in the more expressive style.
26 Of Oley's chorale preludes can be found in manuscript Mus. Ms. 30190, ownedby the Staatbibliothek Berlin. I uploaded al of them last year. I finally came around to gather them all in one edition. To bring this edition to your attention, I made a new recording of my personal favorite: Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern.
