Composer: Sweelinck, Jan Pieterszoon
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Klapmeyer, Altenbruch, 1727–30
Software: Hauptwerk V
Genre: Baroque
2021 is the year that Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck died 400 years ago. His students were Heinrich Scheidemann and Samuel Scheidt. They influenced Buxtehude and Böhm, they influenced Bach etc etc. A founding father of organ and keyboard music, so to speak.

I admire his compositions a lot, not only because I'm from Holland, although there is some national pride involved :). Interpreting his music is not an easy task for me. You can certainly go different directions with the same piece (as I try to demonstrate with 3 versions of variation 1). Besides that, attention to detail is everything. 

4 variations on 'Vater unser':
00:00 Var. 1, à 4 voc.
RP: Gedact 4'
01:30 Var. 2, à 4 voc. coral in cantu
RP: Principahl 8', Gedact 8', Octav 4', Nasat 3', Kromhorn 8'
03:13 Var. 3, à 4 voc. coral in cantu colloratus
RP (lh): Principahl 8', Gedact 8', Gedact 4', Sexquialtera II
OW (rh): Principahl 8', Octav 4'
05:00 Var. 4, à 4 voc. coral in Basso colloratus
RP (lh): Principahl 8', Octav 4'
OW (rh): Quintadöhn 16', Principahl 8', Octav 4', Trometh 8'

Two different interpretations of the 1st variation:
06:42  Var. 1, à 4 voc.
OW: Principahl 8', Tremulant
08:55 Var. 1, à 4 voc.
RP: All stops, except Gedact 4', Mixtur IV

IR is added.
