After moving to his position at the Dresdner Kreuzkantorat, which meant the end of his career as an organist, Homilius compiled 32 of his Chorale preludes for organ and offered them for sale to be disseminated as handwritten copies. For the first time this collection is published here in its entirety and in the original sequence of the preludes. Homilius shows that on the one hand he was inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach, while on the other he followed his own stylistic paths. Thus, for example, he employs extensively the traditional form of the chorale trio, but treads new territory in the harmonic realm. With this volume those seeking a rewarding enrichment of chorale-based organ music will find what they are looking for.
