November Chapter Challenge: Learn a Baroque Chorale Prelude
November 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm
First, work through the handout below. It links to some brief but solid introductions to the art form, featuring works of Martin Luther, Bach, Brahms (non-Baroque), and others.
Next, choose a chorale prelude. The handout will point you to trustworthy collections in print or, alternatively, to a list of chorale preludes in the public domain and available free for instant download.
Then start practicing! We can’t over-emphasize the importance of working with a teacher, but if you’re on your own, go back to the handout for an introduction to the non-legato touch used in Baroque organ playing.
Then join us for Dr. Neil Harmon’s presentation about Baroque chorale preludes on the chapter’s YouTube channel. The video will become available on YouTube after November 15.
