Yet another old Dabringhaus and Grimm CD (from 1985) that is no more available anywhere. Library disc, with label blanked out in the booklet.
The disc contains only two pieces (and tracks). Hans Leo Hassler's "Ich gieng einmal spatieren" with 31 variations, about 33 minutes long and Samuel Scheidt's "Passamezzo" with 15 variations, about 16 minutes long (the length of the two pieces is not given in booklet).
Döling does a good job of rendering those long compositions listenable. They do not come across, IMO, as monotonous, as sometimes the lengthy keyboard variation works of that musical period do. Personally, I prefer Döling's recording to that by Leon Berben who recorded a similarly fine CD with such variations and that has the same 31 variations by Hassler (saw it as a torrent).
