A chorale prelude in rather free form on "Wo soll ich fliehen hin" by M.G. Fischer (1773-1829).

Michael Gotthard Fischer was a German organist and composer.
He was a pupil of Johann Christian Kittel, thus grandson pupil Johann Sebastian Bach. Fischer became organist at Erfurt (Predigerkirche) and also worked at the Barfüßerkirche. In 1816 Fischer taught at the teacher training college Erfurt basso continuo and organ. August Gottfried Ritter, Ernst Ludwig Gebhardi and Eduard Grell were among his pupils. Because of his gout suffering, he was forced to resign from his post of organist in 1820.

Fischer created numerous vocal and instrumental compositions for solo instruments, small and large ensembles. He gained notoriety essentially by his organ compositions.

Recorded on Zwolle, played twice:
- with coupled Praestant 8' of Rugwerk, Hoofdwerk en Bovenpositief and Praestant 16' and 8' Pedaal
- with Vox Humana 8' (HW) coupled with Quintadena 8', Fluit 4' and Quintfluit 3' (RW) and flutes 16' and 8' Pedaal.

Why twice?
This little piece is too beautiful to play it only once ... :-)
I hope you agree!
