Midi Pedalboard

Composer: Löw, Rudolf
Sample Producer: Augustine's Virtual Organs
Sample Set: Aeolian-Skinner Organ (Op 1132) of Redeemer Church
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
Löw's The prelude to "Erhalt uns Herr bei deinem Wort" is a straightforward chorale prelude. The chorale melody is played in the upper voice, and the prelude is no longer then the chorale melody lasts. No intro and no extro or coda. It moves in elegant triple meter and is again, apart from some more modern harmonies, thoroughly Baroque in conception and realisation.

Nevertheless, the triple meter and the g minor tonality, make it suitable to play it far more romantically than one should with a true Baroque composition. Therefore, I used the new sample set by Augustine, of the Aeolian Skinner organ, formerly situated in the Redeemer Church in New Haven. It's lush strings of the swell section were just the sound I imagined for the accompaniment in this chorale prelude.
