For me it's like this: when I'm going through a programming phase, I develop in Java and the music has to pause. Since I've been working on notifications for the last few weeks, there's no time for music. When the "programming fever" has subsided, then I have time for music again. Now I have added a new project to my Opus 2. As you all know, these are three-part - and often large-scale - compositions based on the melody of a chorale. Since there are almost any number of chorales, there is still a lot to do.

"Werde munter mein Gemüte" is a song that fits very well into late summer, I think.
You can find more information about the chorale here:,_mein_Gem%C3%BCte

When I was 16, I composed a set of songs to this chorale, which was performed with instrumental accompaniment as part of a choral concert. Even then I loved Bach, who leads all the voices equally, and so I gave the movement a special bass line, an eighth-note descent over 1.5 octaves, which the accompanying cellist scratched along with visible pleasure (as did I in the bass of the choir, because of course I sang along. Unfortunately, the movement (the hand-scrawled notes) is lost, but I don't think my skill in counterpoint has diminished 44 years later, so here's to a new one!

The fugue is now finished and since I haven't uploaded anything in the last few days, you can listen in. A toccata and - the aforementioned - song movement will follow in the next few days.

Have fun now with the 5-part fugue, which once again sounds quite virtuosic in the coda and with the full organ of the Petrikirche in Erfurt Büßleben!
