Nicolaus Cracoviensis (or Mikołaj z Krakowa) was a 16th-century Polish composer.

Not much is known about his life. His name appears in the Kraków University archives as organist at the Kraków court.

The biggest part of his compositions is contained in two great Polish organ tablatures: by Jan z Lublina (1537–48) and the Cracow Tablature (ca. 1548).
They include his masses, motets, songs, dances and preludes.

His works show Italian influence.
The most known of his works is the choral work Aleć nade mną Wenus (You, Venus, above me).

This impressive, though very small, prelude on the Metzler seems perhaps a bit overdone, but imho it really sounds great on it: the grandeur is enhanced by the organ and the vast acoustics.

It is just over a minute: about the time I have to play a postlude in the Dutch church in Denia before the rattling of the coffeecups and the friendly calling to long-time-no-see (one week max) friends bloats out everything.

Hope you like it!
