Prelude on “Vulpius” for organ solo
a series of variations composed by David W Solomons
(this electronic preview being performed on Jeux samples)
Vulpius was the latinized name of the German composer Melchior Fuchs (= Fox)
born in Wasungen, Germany.
The tune known in Anglican churches as “Vulpius” is his setting of the words:
“Gelobt sei Gott im höchsten Thron” (“Praise Be to God on the highest throne”)
By way of variety I have added a version of
the tune “Go tell it on the Mountain”
at about 2 minutes into the mix!
The score (as one of six preludes by various composers) is available from The Subito Store under the title
