The same manuscript that contains Christian Reichardt’s prelude to “Vater unser im Himmelreich” contains three more preludes that were probably written by Reichardt. The first of these three, a prelude to “Allein zu dir Herr Jesu Christ” is written in the same manner as Reichardt’s prelude to “Vater unser”. The righth plays the richtly ornamented chorale melody on a solo stop, while the left hand plays the accompaniment on another manual. It’s probably because of the likelyness between these two pieces that the anonymous pieces in this manuscript are attributed to Reichardt as well.

The recording was done with the sample set of the Silbermann organ of the Stadtkirche Zöblitz by Prospectum.
