Steemit Open Mic week 135
Buttstett's prelude tot "Es stehn für Gottes Throne" is a three part piece, with the choral melody in the soprano voice. Intruiging is that in the manuscript source the scribe in three different places notates only half a bar. Perhaps in those places a half note rest is meant, though that seems strange as it interrupts the musical flow, and that does not seem very idiomatic for Buttstett's music. In the score I provide a suggestion to fill in these empty moments. If you want to play what's in the manuscript, just ignore the small notes and 'play' rests instead.
The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Matthijs van Deventer-orgel in the Grote Kerk, Nijkerk (https://www.voxusorgans.com/en/product/nijkerk).
