Rudolf Löw, An Wasserflüssen Babylon
The Sächsische Landes- und Universitätsbibliothek in Dresden posesses a manuscript of 12 organ compositions by Rudolf Löw’s hand. It is his opus 1, which he dedicated to his teacher Carl Ferdinand Becker.
The first of the compositions contained is this manuscript is a choral prelude to the choral “An Wasserflüssen Babylon”. The piece start as the exposition of a fugue with the first phrase of the choral melody as the subject. After the fourth entry of the subject in the bass, the first to phrases of the choral melody are stated in the soprano voice. It is again a nice easy flowing piece of this Swiss composer.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Van Dam organ (1832) in Tholen by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
