In 2013 a new hymnal was introduced for use in the PKN (Protestant Churches) of the Netherlands.

Many new hymns were added to the earlier edition of 1973, about three hundred and many other did not make the cut and were removed for various reasons.
Texts were renewed and new melodies chosen from different countries and Dutch poets and composers.

So in addition to my small series of preludes to the Psalms I intend to do a similar series but this time on hymns and preludes. The idea is the same: present contemporary preludes to hymns, new or other, by Dutch composers. As the hymn melodies will not always be known to the audience on the concert hall the order is now reversed: the hymn is played once or twice and then the prelude written to it, to give listeners unfamiliar with the hymn a chance to get aquainted with it first.

Die Wanderschaft in diese Zeit.
Prelude: Dick Troost

Dick Troost (1949) studied with Nico van de Hooven in Utrecht, church nusic with Maarten Kooy and improvisation with Jan Welmers.
From 1967 till now he is the cantor-organist od the Lutherian church in Ede. He wrote much vocal and instrumental music. He did recitals all over Europe and the United Kingdom.
This prelude in old style on a familiar German melody is one facet of his many splendoured talent.

As the melody is well-known, I recorded the prelude only.
