Variationen über "Ein Haus voll Glorie schauet", 13', Bayonne, 2016, Schott, to Förderkreis Orgel und Orgelmusik an St. Nikolaus Frankfurt-Bergen-Enkheim and his founder, artistic leader and head, Bernd Walz, Naji Hakim, St. Nikolaus Frankfurt-Bergen-Enkheim, 26.03.17, Domenica Laetare.


The chorale melody is exposed with an expressive ​and dense harmony before a set of variations including successively, a vehement one part perpetuum mobile on the tutti, a couple of movements in triplets with ornamental and tonal developments of the chorale, an ornamented variation on the cornet, a declamation of the chorale "en taille" on the pedal with voluble arpeggios on the manuals, a four part harmonization on the voix humaine and a toccata developing several contrasted textures to conclude the work with strength and joy.
