Johann Ludwig Krebs wrote many outstanding trios for the organ. Where for his choral works and in several of the free organ works one can pinpoint a work by Johann Sebastian Bach that served as a model, Kreb’s trios are based on Bach’s general style of trio writing, not on individual examples. Kreb’s trio in c minor, KrebsWV 438 is no exception. A steady bass provides the musical underpinning on which two freely moving musical lines wave intricate lines together.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.

Krebs, Trio c moll, KWV 438
