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).
These Six varied Chorales in two, three and four parts were published as opus 78 of their author.  The variations are based over different rythmical patterns and registrations, but also different harmonisations of the choral by turns, which create changing musical moods in a single set.  As often in Rinck’s works the registrations are not precisely indicated, they are replaced by mentions of dynamics, to which a few more hints can be added here and there.


    Auf Christenmensch
    Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten
    Wo Gott zum hauss nicht giebt sein Grust
    Von Himmel hoch da komm ich her
    Ich hab mein Sach Gott heim Gestellt
    Freu dich sehr o meine Seele
