The overall oeuvre of Johanna Senfter only includes three free organ works: ‘Fantasie und Fuge’ Op. 30a (in: Female Composers, ED 9741), the present variations ‘Morgenglanz der Ewigkeit’ Op. 66 and an organ piece in D minor without opus number. Together with the three cycles of chorale preludes Op. 30b, Op. 70 (Schott ED 9603) and Op. 73, the instrument of the organ occupies a rather small part in her oeuvre. That puts the obvious point of view, namely to see the composer of such a ‘choral fantasia’ mainly as a student of Reger, into perspective. It is, on the contrary, worth to get to know this major work as a facet of the long life of an artist whose major works still wait to be rediscovered.
