Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, Der Tag der ist so Freudenreich
This choral prelude is also known as “Ricercar pro Festis Natalytis”. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach wrote that his father considered Fischer to be one of the greatest composers of his time. This ricercar can help to understand why. It is a very cleverly constructed fugue on the first line of “Der Tag der ist so freudenreich”.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Bader-organ in the Walburgiskerk in Zutphen by Sonus Paradisi for Hauptwerk.
