As longtime readers know, every now and then I like to put aside all the jihad stuff, kick back, and relax with the paradisiac music of Johann Sebastian Bach as performed on the Baroque pipe organ.
I only became aware of the chorale prelude “Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan kam” (“Christ, Our Lord, to Jordan Came”, BWV 684) two Christmases ago, when Dymphna gave me the complete organ works of Bach as performed by Marie Claire Alain. The piece mesmerized me from the first time I heard it. Most notable is its constant movement, fast-paced but still stately, beginning with the first note and continuing throughout, mostly in the bass line.
Below is a version performed by Kay Johannsen (location and organ not listed). Not only is this an excellent rendering of the piece, but it features a synchronized score, so that those who read music may follow along:
Soli Deo gloria.
