[4:19] (KrewerdOriginal: 1/4-comma meantone, nearly a whole tone above normal )
To quote from Patrick Roose's score: "This piece of organ music is meant to be
played on one single manual with short octave, with accompanying diapason- stop(s) in the bass and solo half- stop starting at c# 1 ( Cornet?) in the
treble. Having this particular form, the piece cannot be played on two manuals, as the right hand sometimes plays in the bass-side and the treble at
the same time (as in bars 43- 45 and 107- 109)." Unfortunately, the Krewerd Sesquialtera included middle C, which was the topmost note of the
accompanying material (now on Man 1 Prestant 8' + Octaaf 4'), so the solo was assigned to Man. 2 (Holpyp 8' + Fluyt 4' + Octaaf 2' + Sesquialtera) in
the extended version. Patrick is right about human players, but MIDI has ways around human limitations. Krewerd Temperament.
