Johann Heinrich Buttstett, Nun komm der Heiden Heiland
This choral prelude by Buttstett presents th e choral melody twice. The first time in long notes in the spoprano voice. The second time again in the soprano voice, but richly embellished. The music ends in a long run of 32th notes down the scale to the low a on the keyboard. It’s easy to hear this run as a depiction of descend of Jesus from heaven to the newly born boy.
The recording was done on the sample set of the Bader-organ in the Walburgiskerk in Zutphen by Sonus Paradisi for Hauptwerk.
