The tonality of g minor seems to have been very inspirational to Sorge. Not only does he use it often (3 times in the first 6 choral preludes from this manuscript collection), he creates very elegant flowing music with it. This prelude is no exception. It has a relatively long, three voice, introduction, before the chorale melody enters. After that, the accompaniment is a two voice texture, just as in the other preludes.

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