Kauffmann wrote two preludes to “Es ist das Heil uns kommen her”. The first is a three part setting with the chorale melody in the soprano voice. Kauffmann prescribes 8′ and 4′ flutes as registration, or “das volle Werk” ( i.e. full plenum). I choose the soft variant for my performance.

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

    Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to download a MIDI file on your website. It would be nice to have this facility as it was some time ago.

    Best regards

      MIDI files were never available on this site. Probably you mean the mp3-s. And as I asked before: I’d like to know where do you need the mp3-s for?
