Sometimes I 'revisit' one of my older publications. This is from 4 years ago. I play the choral prelude to "Lofvad vare du, Jesu Christ"( or: "Gelobet seist du Jesu Christ", or: "Praise be yo You, Jesus Christ"). This piece was not composed by Dietrich Buxtehude, though that may be your first impression when you listen to this piece. It is written in a style very similar to the style often employed by Buxtehude in several of his choral preludes, and it is a composition of high quality. Yet, the composer is not Buxtehude, but, although it is not entirely certain, Christian Geist.

Three organ works which could be by Geist’s hand reside in manuscript form in the library of the university of Uppsala. His name is indicated in the manuscript but has been erased at a later date, so there is some doubt about the authorship.

Regardless who wrote them, the pieces are very much worth to be played.

The score of all three of them (including versions without alto clef) are available here:
