Georg Friedrich Kauffmann, Lobt Gott ihr Christen all’ zugleich
Kauffmann’s prelude on “Lobt Gott ihr Christen all’ zugleich” is a vivid three-part invention. The choral melody is presented in the middle voice, surrounded by two lively outer voices. Curiously, the prelude states the choral melody twice. There are more pieces in which Kauffmann does that, for example the prelude on “Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her” (to be published in a few days). Perhaps Kauffmann though the piece would be too short otherwise?
The registration follows the indication of Kauffmann himself.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Bader-organ in the Walburgiskerk in Zutphen by Sonus Paradisi for Hauptwerk.
