Johann Balthasar Kehl, Der lieben Sonnen Licht und Pracht
The title of this choral suggest perhaps music with some brilliance. However, the music Kehl actually wrote is to my ears very modest. Therefore I play it with a somewhat slow tempo and a modest registration. The music has a nice, easy pace and sounds clearly on the brink of the classicism. The variartion in styles Kehl employs is impressive.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Van Dam organ (1832) in Tholen by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
