Some of the spurious compositions attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, are not even included in the second appendix of Schmieder’s catalogue of Bach’s works. That could be because Schmieder considered them not to be compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, or because they were not known in the time Schmieder compiled his catalogue. Some 30 years ago Reimar Emans compiled a list of possible Bach compositions. Some of these works are now known to be composed by other composers than Bach. Of some however, the composers are still not known and they remain attributed to Bach, however unlikely the authorship pf Bach is.

This aria is one of those works that only has a numbar in the Emans catalogue. In this cdase the authorship of Bach might be genuine. It is an elegant aria on the chorale “Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn”. It feels more like a composition for harpsichord then for organ.

The recording was done on the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Matthijs van Deventer-orgel in the Grote Kerk, Nijkerk.
