Georg Andreas Sorge, Helft mir Gottes Güte preisen
Sorge’s prelude to “Helft mir Gottes Güte preisen” is again proof of the notion that Sorge was inspired by the tonality of g minor. The piece has a relatively lengthy 3 part introduction before the choral melody enters. For the largest part of the rest of the piece the accompaniment reverts to two parts.
The first brecording was done with the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in the Laurenskerk, Rotterdam.
The second recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradisi, of the Klapmeyer organ in the St. Nikolai church in Altenbruch. In this performance vI repeat the opening ritornello at the end of the piece.
