Georg Friedrich Kauffmann, Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern
Kauffmann wrote two preludes to the choral “Wie schön leuchtet uns der Morgenstern”. For the organ solo one, Kauffmann prescribes the use of a Bourdon 16′. That seems a bit strange to me, for a choral whose text features words like Morgenstern and Freudenschein. In the recording I follow Kauffmann’s registration prescription, but play the music an octave higher than notated.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
BW: Vox Humana 8′, Flagfluit 4′
HW: Bourdon 16′
