Passiontide and Easter for Organ
Bärenreiter’s “Organ Wedding Album” and “Christmas for Organ” have proved highly successful editions among fully or semi-professional organists and church musicians.
Our new volume focuses on well-known hymns for the Passion and Easter season, including “O sacred head now wounded”, “O dearest Jesus how hast thou offended”, “Christ the Lord is risen”, and “Jesus lives, with him live I”. It also contains Passion preludes, festive preludes, organ fantasies, an Easter Sonata and “ Stimmungsbilder ” by Georg Riemenschneider (1848–1913), and much else. The settings stem from various composers of the early to late romantic period, including Johann Georg Herzog, Theophil Forchhammer , Paul Claussnitzer , and Karl Hoyer.
