Johann Gottfried Neumeister (1757 – 1840) was a German teacher and organist. Nowadays Neumeister would have been forgotten if it wasn’t for the collection of chorale preludes he compiled in the years shortly after 1790. This collection, called the `Neumeister Collection’ or the `Neumeister Sammlung’, is a compilation of 82 chorale preludes and was rediscovered in 1985. It attracted a lot of attention because it contained 39 chorale preludes attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, 32 of which were previously unknown. The other works contained in the manuscript are nevertheless equally interesting, and perhaps more so.
Two months ago I published the first part of this edition with all chorale preludes not by J. S. Bach of the “Neumeister Sammmlung”. Today follows the second part. The works in present Edition appear in the order in which they appear in the source.
