Bach's Orgelbüchlein for Reformation 500
Throughout the summer, organist Nick Klemetson will be featuring selections from J.S. Bach's Orgelbüchlein (Little Organ Book). This collection of 45 pieces features German chorale melodies, many of which are in our hymnal, set by Bach as organ preludes organized by liturgical season. The postlude this Sunday will be Heut triumphieret Gottes Sohn (Today, the Son of God Triumphs), an Easter chorale by Bartholomäus Gesius.
