Little Organ Book, in which a beginning organist is given instruction in performing a chorale in a multitude of ways, and also in mastering the use of the pedal, since in the chorales offered here the pedal is used to its full extent. Glory be to God alone, thereby may we our knowledge hone. This collection, one of the most familiar and beloved of all Bach’s organ music, was conceived under dramatic circumstances. Difficult working conditions, a dismissal, and even the haunting prospect of prison form the backdrop of the 45 organ chorales and chorale preludes. Orgelbuchlein has become a treasure chest for posterity to dip into. Mendelssohn, Reger and Busoni wrote piano editions. For Schumann, Brahms and Reger and numerous composers up to our own time, in Norway as well, the Orgelbuchlein style has been an inspiration in chorale style with its concentrated elaboration in melody, polyphony and harmony. Bach elevates the most important hymns, the same ones often used in church life today. “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland”, “Puer natus in Bethlehem”,“Vom Himmel hoch”, “In dulci jubilo”, “O Lamm Gottes”, “Christ lag in Todesbanden”, “Komm, Gott, Schöpfer, heiliger Geist”, and “Liebster Jesu, wirsind hier” are the most familiar. He adds new depth to the classic hymn repertoire through an ingenious union of text and opulent musical elaboration.
