Kauffmann’s prelude to “Komt her zu mir, Spricht Gottes Sohn” is a very nice example of how to derive a musical piece from a choral melody. The accompaniment of the choral melody is based on a motive derived from the first eight notes of the chorale melody. Kauffmann uses this motive through the entire piece right up to the last bars, gving the pice a strong impetus and unity.

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