Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Baroque
The second appendix of Schmieder’s catalog of works by Bach contains the works of which Bach’s authorship is uncertain. The choral prelude to “Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr” is number 48 in this second appendix. There is some evidence that is might be composed by Johann Gottfried Walther. It is a lively piece, with a toccata like introduction, after which the choral melody is played in the pedals.
There’s also a version without the introduction, but I don’t have a source for that version.
