Johann Georg Meister, Christus der ist mein Leben (opus 11 nr 2)
Johann Georg Meister (1793 – 1870) was a German organist and composer. He was organist in the Stadtkirche in Hildburghausen. His opus 11 is available as a digital copy in the Saxon State and University Library Dresden. Number 2 in this opus is a relatively short prelude to “Christus der ist mein Leben”. The choral melody is stated in the tenor. Introduction and accompaniment are not based on elements of the choral melody. But they provide nevertheless a colourfull setting for the chorale melody.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Volkmann organ in the St. Augustine’s church in Lipiny by Piotr Grabowski for Hauptwerk.
