Kauffmann’s first prelude to “In dich habe ich gehoffet” is a fugue on the first phrase of the choral melody. It is a cleverly constructued piece. The fugue theme appears 8 times, twice in every voice. The four entrances in the exposition are easily discernable. It’s the 6th and 7th entrance that are well embedded in the musical discours. Without the score they are probably easily missed.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.

HW: Octaaf 8′, Octaaf 4′, Quintpraestant 3′, Woudfluit 2′, Trompet 8′
RW: Praestant 8′, Octaaf 4′, Superoctaaf 2′, Mixtuur
