Eleven days late for the actual occasion, here is Hanff's version of "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott". Lacking a manuscript source, I based my score on the edition made by Ronald Lopes, available on IMSLP. The main reason to make my own score was that I think the left hand should be notated with the alto-clef. That way, almost no ledger lines or clef changes are necessary to notate the left hand part. I realise of course that not too many organists are able to read the alto clef. Making a version without alto clef, forces an editor to choose what he considers better for readability: a minimum of legder lines, or a minimum of clef changes of even staff changes. Ronald Lopes chooses a minimum of clef changes, I choose a minimum of ledger lines. So a user of these scores now has a choice, based on his or hers own preference.
