Anonymus, Herr Christ, der einig Gottes SohnsteemCreated with Sketch.

in classical-music •  5 months ago  (edited)

The Lynar manuscripts were preserved in the holdings of the Duke of Lynar in Lübbenau, and are therefore also known as the Lübbenauer Orgeltabulaturen. Two of them, large codices in staff notation, bear the designation Lynar A1 and A2. The eleven disparate fascicles in German organ tablature bear the designation B1 to B11. The B-collection represents the most comprehensive source of works by North German composers who were students of Sweelinck. Lynar B3 contains 38 pieces, 11 of which can be assigned to specific composers: Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, Heinrich Scheidemann, David Abel, Andreas and Martin Düben, Petrus Hasse, and Simon Lohet. The composer(s) of the other pieces remain(s) anonymous. Where the preludia I transcribed until now seem for the most part early works of a young starting composer or even student works, the prelude to "Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn" seems a much more mature work. The chorale melody is played in the right hand, as the piece progresses more and more eleborately ornamented, like Buxtehude did in his chorale preludes. Only this prelude was written some 10 or 20 before Buxtehude's. The left hand and feet play an accompaniment in which elements of the choral melody can be heard as well. Al in all an intruigingwork, that makes one wish the composer were known.

The recording was done on the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Matthijs van Deventer-orgel in the Grote Kerk, Nijkerk.

Hi! I am a robot. I just upvoted you! I found similar content that readers might be interested in:

Very good. That's the first piece from this manuscript I published. There are eleven more available on my site

I think that the rule is that you need to verify that it's you who owns and published on You'll need to refer to your account on that website -

Yes, I know. I guess I'm a bit stubborn. I had already to prove that my YouTube channel belongs to me; that channel points to my website as well. Checking for plagiarism is probably a good thing, yet it irrates a little that I am supposed to be a plagitarian unless I prove otherwise. That's the wrong way around.

stubborn = wasted time to post ...

Ah, but on platforms with no real account verification like this... It is all too easy for scammers to make money from your work. Trust on the internet should not be the default!

Well, it should be the default but reality shows it can't. You're both quite right of course. I'll (grudginly) oblige and add a reference to my Steemit account on my website.

Difficult question, there is so much beautiful music available.

One of my favorite chorale preludes to "Kom heiliger Geist, Herre Gott" is this one, from an anonymus composer (though I suspect it was Johann Michael Bach):

Kauffmann wrote a very nice one to the same chorale:

If you know the chorale for which you'd like some music, you can see if there is something available on my site on this page:
