Kaufmann wrote three choral preludes to “Vater unser im Himmelreich”. The first is a powerfull 4-voice fugue on the first phrase of the chorale melody. Kauffmann shows he knew his counterpoint. The theme enters 12 times, 3 three times in each of the four voices. The score helps hearing each of them, the entries in the middle voices are easily overheard. The source is not clear whether Kauffmann meant the piece to be played manualiter or pedaliter. So I provide two scores, so everyone can pick the score suitable for his preferred style of playing.

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