Dietrich Buxtehude, Nun komm der Heiden Heiland, BuxWV 211
Buxtehude’s chorale prelude presents the chorale in the top voice, where it is gracefully and not too elaborately ornamented. Short interludes seperate the melodic phrases from each other. The interlude in bars 14 and 15 has a small surprice: the first melodic phrase of the chorale melody is presented again, in the bass voice.
The recording was done with the sampleset, made by Organ Art Media, of the Arp Schnitger organ in Steinkirchen.
