Gottfried Kirchhoff, Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten

The prelude to "Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten" is already the third of the 7 choral preludes by Kirchhoff's hand I intend to publish. Kirchhoff gave it the form of an organ Trio with the choral melody as bass melody. It is a bit surprising how simple and straigthforward the piece is written. There is no ingenious counterpoint or complicated harmonic progressions to be found, just a three part texture that does it's job as choral prelude very nicely.

The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Müller organ in the Sint Bavokerk, Haarlem (

Thanks. I love the melody as well, one of the mopst beautifull in protestant church music.

It is a prelude ... different. I see in the score that the time is 3/4 with flat. You have waltz time, very interesting. Thank you for sharing this sweet melody. It has been a great pleasure to hear it @partitura
