Three pieces in Neumeister’s manuscript bear the ascription “J. C. Bach”. Since so many of the pieces in this manuscript were composed by Johann Michael Bach, it is an obvious supposition that Johann Michael’s older brother, Johann Christoph Bach is meant. However, it is not certain and a fair number of the Bach family, all bearing the initials “J. C.” could be meant by Neumeister’s ascription. The piece itself is more a chorale harmonisation than a chorale prelude. The chorale melody is set in easy yet effective four part harmony.
The recording was done with the sample set of the Silbermann organ of the Stadtkirche Zöblitz by Prospectum.
