This anthology is an engrossing introduction to the organ composer Theophil Forchhammer and, with its 35 works, provides an ideal cross-section of his oeuvre. There are 18 free pieces in which Forchhammer, a contemporary of Reger, manifests his Romantic spirit; and 17 chorale settings which this new edition presents in commonly encountered keys and which do not coincide with Forchhammer's 11 chorale settings contained in "hier preisen auf der Erd" (EB 8628/29). A rarity - and first edition! - is the "Orgelweihe" (Organ Consecration) in which Forchhammer incorporates no fewer than 13 melodies from Advent to Pentecost.
