Andreas Nicolaus Vetter, Christ lag in Todesbanden
Andreas Nicolaus Vetter (1666-1734) was born in Herschdorf. He studied with Georg Caspar Wecker in Nuremberg and later with Johann Pachelbell in Erfurt. In 1690 he became organist of the Predigerkirche, but he didn’t stay long. In 1691 Vetter went to Rudolstadt to take up a position as castle organist. He was succeeded at the Predigerkirche by Johann Heinrich Buttstett. There are few surviving compositions by Vetter, but this chorale prelude about Christ lag in Todesbanden is one of them. It is part of the manuscript Mus.ms. 22541 III, owned by the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – PK.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Van Dam organ (1832) in Tholen by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
