Johann Christoph Kellner (1736-1803) was born Grafencoda, Thuringia. He was a son of Johann Peter Kellner, who was a pupil of J. S, Bach.
Kellner studied with his father and later with Georg Brenda. After an extended visit to the Netherlands, he returned to Germany and was appointed to the Lutheran church in Kassel in 1764. From 1773 onwards he was also organist in the Roman Catholic church in the same time. He was a well-known and prolific composer.
To hear such music on the Trost organ seems an ideal match!
In the "Trio in C," I attempted to create the feeling of a real orchestral trio, with the bassoon (Hautbois) in the left hand, the flute in the right (including the overblown Flauto traverse), and the 'cello in the pedal.
The somewhat dry acoustic adds to the intimate feel!
