Composer: Walther, Johann Gottfried
Sample Producer: OrganART Media
Sample Set: 2012 Metzler, Poblet Abbey, Spain
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
While the earlier Seiffert edition of Walther's preludes includes these two verses together with the two other verses uploaded earlier as a single 4-verse set, the Breitkopf edition separates these two verses from the others and places them in the appendix., making the case (for several reasons, including stylistic reasons and manuscript reasons) that these two verses were not intended to be part of the other two, and even makes the case that these verses could actually be the product of Johann Tobias Krebs. In any event, we have two more delightful settings of this chorale. The first is for two contrasting manuals and pedal in a type of trio form with the cantus firmus in the alto voice. The second verse is for two contrasting manuals without pedal, with the cantus firmus, ornamented, in the upper voice.

With this final upload, I have completed my journey to record the complete body of chorale preludes by Walther.

While the chorale preludes may be finished, this is not the end of Walther. I recently decided to go ahead and record his 14 surviving concerto transcriptions and 8 other free works (3 of which I've previously uploaded and added to the Walther playlist) as well, so those will be forthcoming over the next several days. :-)
