The “Easy Bach Organ Album” presents works by Johann Sebastian Bach of easy to medium difficulty which can be played on smaller instruments and are therefore suitable for non-professional church musicians and organists.
The edition divides into original works and arrangements by the editor. It contains a selection of ten chorale preludes, three preludes, various works from the “Well-Tempered Clavier”, pieces for manuals from the “Schemelli Gesangbuch” and an arrangement for solo organ of the famous chorale movement “Jesus bleibet meine Freude” from Cantata BWV 147, “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben”.
This anthology presents a varied overview of Bach’s sacred and secular works and is ideal for teaching purposes providing an inspiring introduction to Baroque organ playing for beginner organists.
