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 Offering for this Sunday will be two of Bach's chorale preludes for Pentecost. The first, Komm Schöpfer Gott, is #578 in our hymnal, and the second, Herr Jesu Christ, dich su uns Wend, is #527.
