Folio 39 of manuscript Ms Lynar B3 contains 4 small preludes. The reason why they are so short can only be guessed. Perhaps they were meant as intonations. Or perhaps they were meant as models for the start of a larger scale composition or improvisation. They consist of a contrapuntal exposition of a motive, almost immediately followed by a conclusion. Because they are so small I grouped three of them in one score. The fourth is a litlle bit longer, fits nicely on one page and will be published seperately.

The recording was done on the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Matthijs van Deventer-orgel in the Grote Kerk, Nijkerk.
