    Beckmesser,

    Welcome to the Forum. I hope you continue to participate here.

    While I can't name the particular piece, perhaps we can narrow it down through process of elimination. Because it is harmonic in structure and doesn't use ground bass, we can probably rule out most Medieval music. It is also polyphonic in nature and ends with a Picardy third, so I would suspect it is from the Renaissance era. Because the piece is being played on a continuo organ, one would also need to include harpsichord/piano music from that era.

    Composers who come to mind are: Palestrina, Sweelinck, de Lassus, Gabrieli, Praetorius, Scheidt, etc. For countries, the Italian, Dutch, and German composers come to mind. I would rule out French and Spanish composers because the style in those countries varied greatly from those I mentioned.

    Now that we've narrowed it down to hundreds of composers, good luck finding the actual piece of music! We have some specialists on the Forum. I'll see if they can weigh in on the thread too. Meanwhile, your best bet is probably to contact the manufacturer of the organ to ask the name of the piece used to demonstrate the instrument.

    Again, welcome to the Forum.

    I'd say that it's too modern for Renaissance and would put it at Baroque. Agreed that it doesn't sound French or Spanish and would add that it doesn't sound Italian. I'd place it in Germany somewhere or at least German influence.

    is the music in question.

    is the next video in the mix of continuo organs. This video has "JS Bach C Minor Partita 3rd movement" mentioned at the beginning of the video. The organist is actually playing individual movements from Bachs' Partita on "O Gott, du frommer Gott" BWV 767. In my Barenreiter edition, each movement is referred to as a Partita, beginning with the theme as Partita I. The organist plays Partitas IV, III, VI, then repeats IV using the Flöte 4'.

    The first video, the one mentioned by the original poster, is not part of this Partita. I checked the other Choralpartitas and it doesn't seem to be from one of them either. So, the original question remains to be answered.

    Hi everyone! Thank you very much for your welcome remarks and thanks for the possible answers. Indeed, as Regeron points out, it is not about the video of the Partita in C minor but of the previous video. For its technical aspects I would opt for Germany or Italy at the beginning of the 18th century. Thank you very much everyone for your answers and we are still waiting for a definitive answer. Best regards.

    I just spent some time looking for the piece, and so far have only found the same recording on the Klop website: https://klop.info/en/portfolio/chest-organ/
    Here, the piece is called "Sonate 117 in g kleine terts (3)" (g kleine terts = g minor). However, most search engines will only direct you to Gabriel Fauré when looking for a g minor sonata with the number 117

    You could just contact Klop in the Netherlands and ask I will ask one of my organ friends in the Netherlands, too.

    I'm going to change my mind a bit about the Italian part. The more I listen, the more I hear an Italian concerto or sonata, transcribed by a German for a single manual keyboard.

    One of the Scarlattis?

    I wondered that, too, but having played a lot of Scarlatti, it just doesn't sound like him. It sounds more like a Vivaldi-style instrumental piece, transferred to keyboard. The sequences make me think this, as well as the final cadence..
