Realization of Mvt. 4: Chorale & Mvt. 7: Chorale from Cantata BWV 140, using Well-Tempered Tuning*, keyboard animation

Realization of Mvt. 4: Chorale from Cantata BWV 140, using Pietro Aron Meantone Tuning - Quarter Comma Syntonic, keyboard animation. Might be of interest to illustrate how badly out of tune this piece sounds in the usual organ tuning of Bach's day.

* The "Wohltemperierte Tuning" is described in: The Esoteric Keyboard Temperaments of J. S. Bach by Charles Francis (2005) [PDF]
