This is the fourth prelude in which Kauffmann employs the oboe to play the choral melody. The organ plays an elegant trio to accompany the oboe. Kauffann is not only the inventor of the genre, he also brings it to great height. It’s almost as if not having to worry about where to leave the choral melody in the organ part, brings out his best ideas in organ writing. I first recorded the organ part and dubbed in the oboe-part afterwards, so the recording is not really ‘live’.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
