    It has been over 3 years since I made an organ recording. After playing this organ for some months now I felt sufficiently comfortable to start again. Even so this none too difficult 2-page piece took me some time to get right.
    This is number 39 of Otto Dienel's collection of 43 Chorale Preludes op. 52, Wer nun den lieben Gott lasst walten (Who only lets dear God rule), based a chorale written by Georg Neumark in 1657. This popular chorale was used by many composers like Bach, Walther, Mendelssohn, and more recently, Otto Dienel (1839-1905). It seems to be one of the most popular items of this collection.
    The organ is the Naber-Reil (1974) of the Open Hofkerk in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.

    I do like how it was shaping up to finish with a Picardy third, which is such a cliche, then changed its mind. :)

    Beautifull, Chris. Didn't know this composer... Hence, this music could have been composed 100 or 150 years before, but this is not a reason to disregard it, and your rendition is very professional !
    BTW, I'd be very keen to hear more organ from you (as the PS Kappelmeister !). Organ is a fantasm for me: I would love to study organ, but I don't think I'll ever find the time to do it... Maybe when I am "al otro barrio", as Spanish people say...

    Very nice playing, as always. Which stops did you use? I like the way they bring out the counterpoint.
