Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Producer: Voxus Virtual Organs
Sample Set: Müller Grote of Sint Bavo extended
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
The third and last of the three spurious chorale preludes to the Christmas choral "Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her" is a bicinium. The right hand plays the choral melody and the left hand plays a one part accompaniment. It is a well constructed piece with ingeniously constructued motivic play in the left hand part. That in itself lends credibility to the supposition of J.S. Bach being the composer of this work. But it is hardly conclusive proof. Johann Bernhard Bach for example is the composer of equally well constructed bicinia and he might be the composer of this one as well.
The authorship will remain an enigma.

I just noticed this is my 700th score. Wow, never thought I would get this far when I started, four and a half years ago.
