Lohet’s composition on the melody of psalm 51 sounds to me like it was originally written for voices. It’s a more simple composition than his composition on the melody of psalm 8. It has nevertheless some surprisingelements: parallel octaves and quints appear frequently and there are some colourful dissonants that would have been difficult to sing. So perhaps it’s a pure instrumental composition after all.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Bader-organ in the Walburgiskerk in Zutphen by Sonus Paradisi for Hauptwerk.
