Christian Reichardt, Fugetta super Allein zu dir Herr Jesu Christ
The same manuscript that contains Christian Reichardt’s prelude to “Vater unser im Himmelreich” contains three more preludes that were probably written by Reichardt. One of these is a fugetta on the first phgrase of the melody of “Allein zu dir Herr Jesu Christ”. It is a three part fugue in which, except as first entry in the exposition of the fugue, the theme never enters in the alto voice. Counterpoint was probably not Reichardt’s strong suit. It is nevertheless a nice piece to play and serves well as introduction to the choral.
The recording was done with the sample set of the Silbermann organ of the Stadtkirche Zöblitz by Prospectum.
