Arnolt Schlick and Meantone Repertoire

Schlick’s compositions for the organ reveal a high level of artistry, including trio textures, imitation between voices, and virtuosic pedal passages.
Selected pieces are found in Kimberly’s anthology:
Renaissance Organ Music 1500-1550
Vol. 6 of the series Historical Organ Techniques and Repertoire. Colfax, North Carolina: Wayne Leupold Publishing, 2004 http://www.wayneleupold.com/.
Kimberly’s performance of Schlick’s massive 10-part setting of Ascendo ad patrem meum is recorded in this youtube video:
