    While this composer belongs to the ranks of obscure, but very talented musicians of the North German “music school”, it is not essential music. I am an organ music book collector and I like how all the characters involved in 17th-century German music all seemed to know one another...

    , or knew of their other words, a small world. Anyway, what you’ll find in this fairly slim volume are Schildt’s chorale preludes and 2 very small Praeambulums. I recommend this only to those interested in exploring the “lesser” names in organ musical history.
