Josef Ferdinand Norbert Seger, Prælude, B Dur (L 12)
The next two preludes from manuscript Becker III.8.63, held by the Städtische Bibliotheken Leipzig, share the same tonality, b flat major. The first of these two, publshed here today, has an introduction of 7 bars where one bass note bears the indication “ped.”. The rest of the composition is probably meant as a manualiter piece, so that one pedal note seams a bit odd. It raises the question whether the first 7 bars are part of Seger’s original composition or that they were added later, perhaps by the scribe of this manuscript.
The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the demo sampleset, made by Sonus Paradisi, of the Sieber organ in the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, Polná (https://www.sonusparadisi.cz/en/organs/czech/polna-sample-set.html).
