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 Liebster Jesu, wir sind hir, BWV 633. This chorale tune is the melody for the opening hymn Sunday (ELW 520).
