Auke Jongbloed, Jesu der du meine Seele
The work on Mohrheim’s Trio 7 reminded me of a chorale prelude I composed myself many years ago. I wrote it somewhere in the time I studied harmony and contrapunt. I have no idea why I ever chose this particular chorale. But it’s clear I must have heard Bach’s cantata BWV 78 around the same time, because the right hand part of my piece uses the same melodic figure as the accompaniment of the aria Wir eilen mit schwachen, doch emsigen Schritten.
Anyway, I dug up the manuscript, and made a nice score of it. It’s not Bach, of course, but I still think it’s a nice piece to play.
The recording was done the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in the Laurenskerk, Rotterdam.
