Dietrich Buxtehude, Von Gott will ich nicht lassen (BuxWV 220) Buxtehude's prelude to "Von Gott will ich nicht lassen", BuxWV 220, is in his familiar style. The soprano voice plays the choral melody with colourfull embelishments. The other voices accompanythe solo voice with elements and motives from the chorale melody. The score is based on the Frankenberg manuscript. The Frankenberg lacks the final bar that is present in most eidiotns. I decided to stick to the source, so this edition is also a bar shoter than most other editions. The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Müller organ in the Sint Bavokerk, Haarlem ( Score available here:
