This is the second upload with a piece from the organbook of Matthias Rottenau. The book is divided in several parts, each of which contains one type of piece: Praeambule, Introiti, Toccate, Canzone, Capricci and Ricercare. In each part, except the part with Capricci, Erbach is present with several pieces. And in each part there are several or even a lot of pieces with no name of a composer attached to it. With so many pieces, it’s hard to chose which one to do next. So it’s a bit arbitrary that I choose a canzona of Erbach.
Even though it’s another type of piece than the Ricercare I uploaded last week it has a lot of similarities with it. It is reminiscent of a fugue, but has, compared with the Ricercar, more free episodes. And it has overall a lighter touch.
HW: Prestant 8′, Octaaf 4′,
RW: Quintadena 8′, Octaaf 2′
