Kauffmann’s prelude to “Nun lasst uns Gott den Herrn” is actually not by Kauffmann at all, but is a piece composed by Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow. Kauffmann’s widow included it in the publication after Kauffmann’s death. It is very much like some of the chorale preludes by Johann Michael Bach and Johann Pachelbell. Solemn in character, with craftmanshiplike voice leading, it features the chorale melody in the bass voice. There is no registration prescription, so it is a bit of a guess whether he meant it as a manualiter piece or not. The performance uses the pedals, and the score is provided in two versions, pedaliter and manualiter.

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