This selection of shorter and easier chorale preludes is designed to supplement Karl Straube's '45 Chorale Preludes of the Old Masters' (EP3048), especially for use in church. We therefore selected only those pieces which can be used today - transposed, where necessary, to more suitable keys. In the case of important chorales, several treatments were included, sometimes in more than one key. Musical value was the primary factor of selection, but, where possible, preferance was given to compositions not generally available elsewhere. Of the 80 pieces, 24 require the pedals; 33 do not use them; in 23, they are optional. Thus the collection offers rich material for organists at all stages of development. (Hermann Keller, Stuttgart, September 1937)

Most do not require pedal; includes 18 suitable for Christmas.

    This collection is valuable in so many ways. it is an excellent survey of pieces based on German chorales. it can be used as an introduction to chorale-based pieces for students and organists of all levels and in church. These are some of the most familiar chorales and most...

    , if not all, can be found in most recent quality hymnals-not just Lutheran but United Methodist , United Church of Christ, Episcopalian, Roman Catholic and Presbyterian. They can also be used in recitals. Very good all-around volume!

  • August 26, 2008 What A Find!

    I own a 40+ year old copy of the Achtzig Choralvorspiele. I'm going to be using it again. I love playing many of the preludes because they are so well done and the choral is brought out in each one.

    This collection of works by Walther, Kneller, Scheidemann, Scheidt and a host of other fine baroque composers who would have been called "major composers" had not Bach eclipsed them contains a wealth of chorale-based seletions suitable for recital and church service. Some are manuals only (alio modo), some have...

    the cantus in the pedal, and others are "a 2 clav. & pedal" so the collection is useful for teaching young organists. I'm replacing a copy that I have been using for 50 years and I'm still discovering new things in these pieces.

    I am very pleased with the choice of selections included in this organ album. The composers are "all" my favourites. The degree of difficulty is such that I can prepare them for service playing without an exceptional amount of practice required. This makes this book especially useful during the busy...

    Advent/Christmas season. Thanks.
