The third and last work by Christian Geist in the Uppsala manuscript is a choral prelude on “Lofvad vare du Jesu Christ”, in other parts of the world known as “Gelobet seist du Jesu Christ”. It is again a fine example of the Northern German organ style.
The original is written in tablature. For my transcription I use the alto clef for the left hand part, since I think that is the best choice. That way almost no additional lines are necessary. But for those who can’t read the alto clef I made an additional version, using both treble and bass clef. The result is visually not as pleasing, but I hope it helps more people to be able to play this piece.
The recording was done with the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in the Laurenskerk, Rotterdam.
