Sorge’s second chorale prelude to “Komm heiliger Geist, Herre Gott” from manuscript Mus Ms 30376 (Staatsbibliothek Berlin) shows him from another side. No trio like texture, but an imitatory introduction based on the first phrase of the chorale melody. Contrapuntal writing is not Sorge’s best trait. The writing feels a bit stiff. However the result is a charming little piece, so who am I to complain?

The recording was done on the sample set of the Van Dam organ (1832) in Tholen by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
