Description:
Edvard Hagerup Grieg (Norwegian: 15 June 1843 – 4 September 1907) was a Norwegian composer and pianist. He is widely considered one of the leading Romantic era composers, and his music is part of the standard classical repertoire worldwide. His use and development of Norwegian folk music in his own compositions put the music of Norway in the international spectrum, as well as helping to develop a national identity, much as Jean Sibelius and Antonín Dvořák did in Finland and Bohemia, respectively. Grieg is regarded as simultaneously nationalistic and cosmopolitan in his orientation, for although born in Bergen and buried there, he traveled widely throughout Europe, and considered his music to express both the beauty of Norwegian rural life and the culture of Europe as a whole. He is the most celebrated person from the city of Bergen, with numerous statues depicting his image, and many cultural entities named after him: the city's largest concert building (Grieg Hall), its most advanced music school (Grieg Academy), its professional choir (Edvard Grieg Kor), and even some private companies that include its largest hotel (Quality Hotel Edvard Grieg), and a music technology developer (Grieg Music). The Edvard Grieg Museum in Troldhaugen (Grieg's former home in Bergen) is dedicated to his legacy.

This interesting chorale prelude is drawn from a collection of 17 chorales and fugues, composed around 1862. It is a setting of the well-known chorale, "Jesus, meine Zuversicht," and something of the "feel" of a Brahms prelude to it. It's a nice piece, perhaps a bit "fussy," but well-worth whatever efforts are spent on making it work.

The listening perspective is just about square in the middle of the church.

The sound qualities of the "Lovely Ladegast" seem just about ideal for this music.

The score is attached below, as well as two photographs of Edvard Grieg.
