Christian Gotthilf Tag, Was alle Weisheit
Tag’s prelude to the chorale “Was alle Weisheit” (on the melody of “Christ unser Herr, zum Joran kam”) is a beautiful, longwinded composition. Though the piece is marked “Allegretto” I thought it best to take it a bit more slowly than that, giving room for the many ornamentations and to give myself the oppotunity to emphasize the many dissonants in the piece.
The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Müller organ in the Sint Bavokerk, Haarlem (http://www.voxusorgans.com/en/product/haarlem).
