The last three Trio's by Mohrheim are based on chorale melodies. They are not real Trio's in that it is music for just three voices. This fifth trio is actually a four voice piece. It is more a chorale prelude, than it is a Trio. But all this doesn't really.

This choral prelude is the first of two preludes on this melody by Oley, found in Ms 30190. It is subtitled "2 Clav. et Ped", but I think there is no need in this piece for two manuals, so I play it on one. The recording was done the sampleset, made.

Johann Christoph Oley, Wir Christenleut

Date: September 21,  2015

Oley's choral prelude on "Wir Christenleut" is a nice piece in itself. But it seems to me more melancholy than the text of the choral would suggest. The recording was done the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in the Laurenskerk, Rotterdam. Score Oley, Wir.

Mohrheim's third Trio in g moll is probably the best known of his 7 Trio's. It is set up as a three voice fugue. The trickiest point in the score is a long trill in the pedal. I managed the trill, but lost the tempo a bit... ;-( The recording was.

Oley's choral prelude on "Wie soll ich dich empfangen?" starts promising, but is over before you know it. It's still a nice piece, but I think Oley could have done more with the basic material. The recording was done the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in.

Johann Georg Schübler, Trio für Orgel

Date: September 09,  2015

A few months ago I posted a fugue by Johann Georg Schübler. The only other piece by his hand that I know of, is the Trio presented here today. It is a charming piece to listen.

This choral prelude is based on the same melody that Bach uses for his partita BWV 767. It is a slow flowing embellishment of the choral melody. Near the end I added some coloratura in my performance. The piece is a bit repetitive in my opinion otherwise. The recording was done.
