The so-called Frankenberger Manuscript is one of the most precious items in the collection of the Netherlands Music Institute. It contains 196 organ chorale settings from the period 1650-1730, compiled and copied by the composer and organist Johann Gottfried Walther (1684-1748).
It is the aim of the NMI both to preserve its treasures and to make them available to the largest possible audience. This web presentation allows one to leaf through this manuscript and study the music, without compromising the preservation of the original.
