Composer: Anonymus
Sample Producer: Voxus Virtual Organs
Sample Set: Müller Grote of Sint Bavo extended
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
The eighth piece of the second fascicle of manuscript Mus. Ms 30439 is a fantastic prelude on “Mit Fried und Freud, ich fahr dahin”. The procedure is familiar from several other pieces in this manuscript: first a four part fugue on the opening stanze of the choral melody. Then the soprano voice is silent for several bars, after which it reenters to state the full choral melody in long notes. The voice leading is superb, creating a profoundly moving piece.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
