Johann Ludwig Krebs probably needs no introduction. Famous composer, organist and pupil of Johann Sebastian Bach: der einzige Krebs im Bache. Krebs certainly was familiar with organs built by organ builder Tobias Heinrich Gottfried Trost, because in the Schlosskirche in Altenburg, where Krebs was organist at the court, was an organ by Trost. Bach also became familiar with this organ, while visiting this organ in 1739. So it's nice to play Krebs on the set of another Trost organ, the one in Waltershausen.

Hereby a small prelude in C minor by Krebs using one of the many plenum possibilities of this organ. Rather unforgiving acoustics, but let's say that highlights the beautiful sounds of this organ.
