The chorale prelude on 'Vater unser im Himmelreich', BWV 636 is part of Das Orgelbüchlein. It is a set of 46 chorale preludes for organ — one of them is given in two versions — by Johann Sebastian Bach. All but three were written between 1708 and 1717 when Bach served as organist to the ducal court in Weimar; the remainder and a short two-bar fragment came no earlier than 1726, after the composer’s appointment as cantor at the Thomasschule in Leipzig.

Bach's apparent plan was for a collection of 164 settings of chorale tunes sung during the Church year so that each part of the year was represented. However, only 46 of these were completed. The Orgelbüchlein as Bach left it contains about 80 minutes of music which span the liturgical calendar.

Recorded on the Sweelinq model of the Hinsz organ, Kampen. The pedal division of this organ (in reality and thus in the set) isn't the strongest, so I added the Principal of the Hoofdwerk, while playing the manualiter part on the Rugwerk.
