Rinck (1770 † 1846) is mainly known through organ methods and anthologies for beginners which unescapebly include small ‘Preludes’ or ‘Verses’, simple technically as... musically. But Rinck wrote much more interesting works : Preludes and Fugues, varied Chorales, Fantasias, various concert pieces.  He was nicknamed the ‘Rhenish Bach’, which shows enough what was his reputation even during his lifetime (actually he had been a student of Kittel, one of Bach’s last disciples).
 
The Thirty Preludes in every major and minor key are part of his ‘Practical Organ School’ in six volumes published in 1819-1821, then reissued several times during the XIXth century in more or less faithful versions.  Easy to play but not cheap, they are perfectly written and are about one page long.  The registrations are left to the appreciation of the performer, following the general indications of dynamics provided by the author.
