Johann Schneider, Vater unser im Himmelreich
Of the few surviving choral bound works of Johann Schneider, two are based on the choral “Vater unser im Himmelreicht”. They are both finely crafted works that show we have much to regret that so few of his works have survived.
The first has the canto fermo in the soprano voice. The work shows a lightheartedness not often associated with this choral melody.
Recorded with with with the sampleset, made by Organ Art Media, of the Arp Schnitger organ in Steinkirchen.
