Georg Friedrich Kauffmann, Wär Gott nicht mit uns dieser Zeit
Kauffmann’s prelude to “Wär Gott nicht mit uns dieser Zeit” is written like a Trio for organ, with the choral melody as bass voice. The other two voice introduce each phrase of the choral melody with short imitations. To my ears the character of the piece is far more intimate than the prelude to “Nun lasst uns Gott den Herren”, published two days ago. The registration was chosen accordingly.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
