My organ version of the "Kleine Choralkantate" on this famous chorale by Friedrich Zipp (1914-1997).

Friedrich Zipp (born June 20, 1914 in Frankfurt am Main , † October 7, 1997 in Freiburg im Breisgau ) was a German composer and church musician.

After graduation in 1933 Zipp studied music education and church music in Frankfurt and Berlin, including with Armin Knab. After graduating as a church musician in 1938 Zipp worked as a lecturer, choirmaster and organist in Frankfurt. In 1941 called for military service, 1945 in American captivity.

From 1945 Zipp was again a church musician in Frankfurt and worked as a freelancer for the Hessischer Rundfunk. In 1947 Zipp was a lecturer in composition and ear training at the State Academy of Music in Frankfurt a. M., where he was appointed professor in 1962. In 1977 Zipp moved to Freiburg i. Br., where he lived until his death in 1997.

His extraordinarily broad compositional work includes both sacred and secular choral works as well as instrumental music. Among them is in addition to compositions for organ and piano "O du lieber Augustin: Metamorphoses in the style of famous composers" chamber music, as well as compositions for brass ensembles and orchestral music.

This 'organ cantata' has 5 parts:
0:00 introduction
0:52 verse A - chorale setting
2:10 verse B - mel. in the bass part
4:16 verse C - mel. in the tenor part
5:49 conclusion (=introduction ff)

I hope you'll enjoy it!
