Walther wrote three chorale preludes on the melody of "Nun komm der Heiden Heiland", each belonging to a different verse of the choral. In publishing them, I somehow reverted the order of the three, starting with verse 3, last year verse 2, and now verse 1. It is a plain three part prelude with the choral melody in the soprano voice. The music flows easy, smooth and almost predictably. Walther has a very natural way of writing choral preludes. Playing his music always makes me feel like writing music like this is easy. Until I try to write it myself, of course. Than it is immediately clear it is not ewasy at all, and that Walther was extremely gifted to be able to write music that sounds so easy and natural.
