This choral prelude on the melody of “Was mein Gott will das g’scheh allzeit” is a straightforward piece. The introduction is a short fugato on the first line of the choral melody. Then follows the complete chorale melody as a solo voice, accompanies by rapid sixteenth notes in the left hand and a simple bass line for the feet. The second half of the introduction is then repeated to conclude the piece.

Not really a masterwork. Tricky to play though, with all those rapid notes for the left hand in a very open Trio like structure.

The recording was done with the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradisi, of the Schittger organ in the St. Martini-kerk, Groningen.
