Georg Böhm wrote two pieces based on this Christmas hymn: a choral prelude (publisehd a year ago on this site) and this set of variations. After the choral follows a series of 5 variations. They build up from relatively easy flowing 3-part writing in the first variation to dense virtuosic 4-part writing in the last variation. A nice piece to use on Christmas day. And a nice piece to show of different colors of an organ.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Mascioni of the parisch church in Azzio, made by Piotr Gabrowsky.
