Johann Sebastian Bach: Toccata und Fuge in d BWV 538 b
Albert Behrends: 12 kleine Orgelfantasien im alten Stil zu Luther-Chorälen
Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu dir
Es wolle Gott uns gnädig sein
Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort
Nun bitt en wir den heiligen Geist
Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g‘mein
Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich
Herr Christ, der einig Gott s Sohn
Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, der den Tod überwand
Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ
Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland
Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin
Komm, Gott Schöpfer, Heiliger Geist

The “12 Small Organ Fantasies in the Ancient Style” presented here based on the chorals of Martin Luther were composed by A. Behrends for Luther’s anniversary in 2017 and were played and recorded at the Furtwängler-organ of St. Peter’s in Buxtehude in May 2012.

Susanne Wegener, apprentice of Albert Behrends and organist in Jork and Borstel in the Altes Land, describes the compositions which combine both a tradition still alive and new ideas, as follows:

“… The old stylistic devices are being rephrased: established and familiar twists are avoided, the old ways are deliberately broken with and sounds are being combined in a way which was, according to the old rules, to be strictly avoided. Character pieces were created which, despite all their freedom, are strictly based on the text and melody of the choral as a source of inspiration."
