Johann Balthasar Kehl, Sei Lob und Ehr dem höchsten Gut
Yesterday I realized I still have to finish my series of choral preludes by Johann Balthasar Kehl. Only a few pieces left to go, and then it’s time to round them all up in a new edition.
The prelude on “Sei Lob und Ehr, dem höchsten Gut” is ont of the few pieces where Kehl prescribes the use of the pedals. However, the pedals don’t have an independent part. They facilitate playing the piece and are not meant as seperate voice. So I just use a coupler to the manual the left hand is playing and no pedal stops.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Van Dam organ (1832) in Tholen by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
