Five of the pieces in the Neumeister manuscript are without a named composer. Based on stylistical grounds and on references to other sources two of these pieces can be attributed to Johan Pachelbel, two to Johann Michael Bach and one to Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow. The prelude to “Was mein Gott will, das gescheh allzeit” one of the two pieces that is supposedly written by Johann Pachelbel (the other being “Christ lag in Todesbanden”). Though since there is no way to know for certain, I designate it as ‘anonymous’ in the score, with the possibility of Pachelbel’s authorship added in parentheses. It is a nice solemn piece, written in such a way that the choral melody can be played on a seperate manual.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
