Festive Voluntary on an Easter Hymn
For a change from the traditional Easter hymns consider using this voluntary on VRUECHTEN, a 17th century Dutch melody. The first setting of the hymn is in C major, but with accidentals scattered about. The key then moves to Eb major where the melody moves to the bass and is accompanied by upper octaves using thumb damps. There are occasional shifts of meter from 4/4 to 6/4.
