* Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling

Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling (1904–1985) was a pupil of Heinrich
Kaminski and a teacher of
composition at the Berlin Musikhochschule. He was also one of the
leading figures in the
revival of sacred organ music in the first half of the 20th century.
Throughout his career he
maintained a firm belief in tonality, which he justified in ethical
terms. At the root of his highly
contrapuntal music was a thorough commitment to the western musical

This edition bears witness to the outstanding organ music of this
composer and organist and
draws the reader’s attention to such works as the Prelude and Fugue
and the Canonic Organ
Prelude on “Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stand”. But this selection does
more than recall previously
published music: three lesser pieces, the organ chorales on “O Haupt
voll Blut und Wunden”
(versions 1 and 2) and “Lobet den Herren alle, die ihn ehren”,
appear here for the first time
in print.
